CSPG Be Connected
CSPG Be Connected – A national Open Data Research Project.
A research project to understand how the UK Public Sector uses its own spend data to identify savings.
Using data isn’t a new idea. We are not looking to reinvent the wheel.
With the UK Public Sector predicted to spend £828billion in 2018, we believe that there is room for savings to be found… with access to the right data.
Public sector buyers use data to look for ways to save money BUT the data they have access to currently is limiting the number of opportunities to save. The national debt is spiraling and the pressure on our councils to provide better services is ever increasing.
The role of procurement and ‘buying’ in the public sector is undervalued and massively underappreciated. The Public Purse believes these roles are far too important to not have access to the right tools and resources needed to do the best possible job.
CSPG Be Connected is designed to give procurement and public sector buyers access to the most comprehensive spend data available. Data that is clean, consistent, maintained and collected by a central body. ‘Full Visibility’ now exists!
Through collecting and maintaining public sector spend data ourselves, we have created the most robust price comparison and benchmarking tool available for public sector buyers. We have also created a tool that can identify and bring about cross-sector collaborations – currently an untapped resource for savings in the UK public sector.
If you would like access to our data or would like to know more, please get in touch.
