As the go-to public sector procurement consultancy, we have over 20 years of specialist procurement and supply chain management experience over a broad range of projects.

By leveraging our digital capability, sophisticated operating model designs and advanced data analytics, we optimise supply chain logistics and commercial processes for organisations across the public sector. Taking a hands-on approach to projects, we partner with you to cut costs, reduce risk, and maintain these wins in the long term.

Our involvement in public sector procurement and supply chain projects extends from the NHS’s COVID-19 vaccine programme, through developing supply chain security for the Ministry of Defence, to Local Government procurement transformations and supporting the execution of Central Government procurement strategies.

A deep understanding of public sector-specific challenges and regulations underpins our work, including the UK’s upcoming Procurement Bill, in which our expertise and proven Strategic Supplier Relationship Management (SSRM) methodology will be vital to meet the new standards.

Despite facing significant challenges, public sector organisations must continue delivering uncompromising quality and effectiveness with minimal resources – the strength of their procurement and supply chain functions will make all the difference.

Our work with UK public sector bodies includes

NHS and Healthcare

Our extensive experience in both the public sector and healthcare procurement makes us a natural partner for the NHS and other public healthcare providers, as evidenced by our key role in delivering the UK’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout. We understand the cost pressures of the NHS and the need to continue delivering at pace against performance targets

Defence and Security

By focusing solely on procurement and supply chain for over 20 years, we're uniquely placed to address the procurement challenges of the Ministry of Defence and government agencies, such as ensuring supply chain security and resilience, despite a fractured global distribution network and the inherent complexities of regulated procurement.

Central Government

Ministerial and non-ministerial central government departments are under pressure to do more with less. Our procurement expertise enables you to continue delivering value to the UK public while navigating increasing cost pressures, policy changes and approvals processes.

Local Government

We work with local government to design future-fit operating models and develop strategic sourcing and delivery strategies that create procurement efficiencies as well as cost savings, crucial to support under-pressure services such as social care. Transport, Infrastructure and Utilities. Our ability to ensure targets are consistently delivered has resulted in several highly successful long-term partnerships with clients in these sectors.

Thinking Differently

Efficio thinks differently from traditional consultancies: not just providing strategic guidance but working alongside you through delivery as a true procurement and supply chain partner. We add value to infrastructure and deploy more effective tools and technology to provide deeper analytics and enable better decision-making. Efficio’s digital procurement platform supports our innovative contracting and tendering models, giving you visibility over the entire supply chain and allowing you to optimise value across it.  An extensive internal knowledge-sharing network also enables us to utilise our accumulated experience to accelerate results on each new project we undertake.

Our priority is upskilling and developing public sector procurement professionals to ensure they continue demonstrating best practice long after we have gone.

Our fees are linked to objectives, offering a balance of risk with reward, and making it easier for public sector procurement professionals to choose an external consultant, resulting in better value for money.
