Central government in Britain spends in the region of GBP24 billion a year in goods and services, presenting a massive opportunity for procurement innovation and design. Customer satisfaction is paramount and failure to provide it can be linked to poor specification or the lack of incorporation of key determinants.

Case studies in Public Sector Procurement and Design is a study aid to specifically support the professional stage syllabus of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply Graduate Diploma and other graduate and post-graduate programmes available across the UK and abroad.
