Comensura Claims New 16M Contract

Comensura, the UK's market leader in the procurement and management of indirect services, has signed a three-year contract with the North Eastern Purchasing Organisation (NEPO) to operate and manage the supply of temporary agency workers for a number of its member authorities. The contract will deliver guaranteed savings each year of four per cent on NEPOs participating authorities annual budget of 16 million. The average saving across NEPO is estimated at 8%.

Comensura offers a combination of managed services and sophisticated technology platform that together manages the entire process for the procurement of temporary agency workers. It enables key functions to be automated, and monitors and ranks supplier agencies against key criteria agreed with NEPO including cost, responsiveness and the calibre of candidates to create a dynamic competitive supplier chain that helps assure the delivery of quality workers.

At a time when local government organisations are under increasing pressure to reduce procurement spend, Comensura is providing NEPOs members with guaranteed, sustainable cost savings. The Comensura system will also streamline internal processes, provide more accurate management information, and improved compliance with current employment legislation and policy.

Not only does the Comensura system remove much of the time consuming administrative burden associated with temporary recruitment, it also provides management with much greater control of and visibility into recruitment spend, says Councillor Allan, Chairman of NEPOs Joint Committee, As it is a vendor neutral solution it has the added advantage of providing a much wider choice of candidates facilitating streamlined access of opportunity for local recruitment agencies.

Mike Trevor, CEO of Comensura says: Our service will allow member organisations to reduce the time it takes to recruit temporary staff, improve the quality and fit of candidates, and simplify the administrative processes involved in order to deliver immediate direct and indirect cost savings.

Comensura is the largest single supplier of temporary staff into the public sector. It offers access to its services through an innovative gain share pricing model. No upfront fees are payable instead Comensura retains a share of the savings that it generates on behalf of the client.
