Havering and Newham Councils sign up to capitalEsourcing

Anthony Oliver, Westminster City Council’s chief procurement officer said: “The fact that Newham and Havering Councils have now signed up is testament to the benefits capitalEsourcing has already provided for the Tri-borough councils – and we believe other authorities will soon come on board too.”

Havering and Newham Councils have now signed up to Tri-borough’s capitalEsourcing system, which makes the procurement process more efficient as it allows tendering to be automated, cutting out a large amount of administration and paper work.

Launched in January by Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea, and Hammersmith & Fulham councils, the system also provides buyers one place to manage procurements, award contracts and monitor supplier performance.

Anthony Oliver, Westminster City Council’s chief procurement officer said: “CapitalEsourcing has been developed by local government for local government. It standardises and simplifies the way we do business, providing efficiencies for both councils and their suppliers.
