Procurement Plan

The NAO advertises various requirements throughout the year.

Purchasing Policy/Procurement Policy

The key aim of the NAO's procurement policy is to help to facilitate the 2013 Procurement Strategy to assist the NAO to spend wisely by:
seeking innovation and value for money, including identifying cost reduction opportunities, in what and how we buy, encouraging collaboration, including the use of public sector Framework Agreements where possible;
promoting a culture of good governance in all procurement-related activities, including compliance with UK and EU procurement legislation, and recognised best practice;
embedding excellent practice throughout the procurement lifecycle, through the use of standard documentation and processes, including the use of NAO Framework Agreements, electronic tendering and procurement cards etc where possible;
maximising contractual protection through the use of standard terms and conditions;
encouraging effective management of supplier delivery and performance, using recognised project, contract management and relationship management approaches;
supporting decision-making though the provision of relevant and accurate management information; and maintaining a team of professional procurement staff committed to continuous professional development.

The NAO Procurement Policy 2013 can be found in the 'other information' section.

Purchasing Practices/Procurement Procedures

The NAO will seek to source its requirements through existing framework agreements where possible. These agreements have been competitively tendered following advertisement in the OJEU and involve a simplified procurement process and reduced timescales for each subsequent requirement. The CPT can advise which framework agreements the NAO may access. Care must be taken to ensure that framework agreements are used appropriately as incorrect usage may result in a breach of procurement law.
Where it is not possible to use a framework, the NAO is committed to an inclusive and transparent approach to buying, which means encouraging competitive bidding, across a range of requirements. For very low value requirements, sourcing can be undertaken using a range of tools, including the internet and professional journals. For higher value requirements (i.e. over 25,000) it will be necessary to advertise in a suitable medium (e.g. the Contracts Finder http://www.contractsfinder.businesslink. the NAO Procurement e-Tendering portal: https://www.delta-esourcing.com/delta/in
