The Procurement of Goods and Services Workstream aims to:

  • Coordinate links on procurement issues within the fire sector between the fire & rescue service, the suppliers, their trade organisations and the sector regulators
  • Contribute to UK procurement policy and debate (central, devolved and local government) to ensure the sector delivers “best value” for the UK in terms of quality and whole life costs for the UK fire & rescue sector
  • Advise Government (central, devolved and local) on procurement concerns within the sector and to coordinate the sector’s response on related consultations and to generally act as a conduit between Government and the sector on procurement issues
  • Act as sector host for the interface between the Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA) Working Group and trade associations on trading policy within the UK fire & rescue service. To agree best practice and policy and review the ongoing direction of this policy and its implementation
  • Encourage and develop a positive procurement environment which actively encourages and facilitates innovation to improve the ongoing quality of products and services for the UK fire & rescue sector and to contribute to improving safety for UK firefighters
  • Ensure that procurement considerations are properly reviewed and integrated into major sector projects and developments
