Value Wales

Value Wales drives best practice in procurement across the Welsh public sector.

The Welsh public sector spends £4.3bn per year on external goods and services. Value Wales is responsible for shaping policy, monitoring practice, supporting and advising professionals, developing the procurement profession, and compliance with EU regulations.

The Wales Procurement Policy Statement sets out the procurement practices and actions required of all public sector organisations in Wales. Value Wales helps the Welsh public sector realise improved value for money through ‘smarter procurement’ by

  1. increasing savings through collaboration
  2. improving process efficiency especially through use of technology
  3. protecting the economy by encouraging smaller and more local suppliers and seeking re-investment in local communities
  4. building procurement capability.

Value Wales' Procurement Route Planner (external link) provides step-by-step guides to buying goods and securing services. It enables a consistent approach that mirrors the Welsh Government's 4-stage commissioning cycle.
