Description
THIS IS NOT A CALL FOR COMPETITION This Soft Market Test is intended to allow a limited number of interested organisations with relevant experience to outline their views and provide information with no commitment to themselves or the Council. STAR is a shared service that delivers procurement between Stockport, Trafford, Rochdale and Tameside Councils and other associated partners. Our core service is offering assurance and compliance with sourcing processes. Serving multiple service areas across a range of different category areas (People, Place and Professional), STAR are involved from pre-procurement up to the award. Once the contract is awarded, the contract is handed to the service area for it to be delivered and managed. The main challenge for STAR is managing services across four major partners and their associated partners. There is an ambition to standardise processes via systems and embrace a Procurement Relationship Management system, moving away from human error and managing emails in outlook. STAR needs to offer a more assured process whereby clients can track where a sourcing process is up to and the responsibilities; who, what, why and where. STAR is only intrinsically linked to Trafford Council’s servers, meaning it is likely that STAR requires a web-based system that can be accessed by all partners without the need of requesting server access.
