Value in Procurement.
An Exor Accredited
Database enables the introduction of an auditable,
organisation-wide best value purchasing capability,
providing genuine revenue savings. An Exor supplied
database is able easily to integrate into any
existing technology infrastructure as well as
current or future e-government initiatives including
the Local Government on-line programme.
Exor additionally offers
a simple 3 click supplier selection
system EPASS, which provides an easy way of selecting
pre-qualified suppliers to be invited to bid for
contracts or purchases EPASS system includes an
Autorotation capability to ensure a fair distribution
of work to any qualified supplier as well as providing
an auditable record of activities.
EPASS facilitates a feedback
mechanism for supplier activity and performance
collaboration between PSA's within the Exor network.
For example common suppliers can be identified
and purchasing linked, or highlighted as a potential
Investment and Urban Regeneration.
Exor employs a tiered
accreditation approach specifically designed for
those public bodies seeking to develop holistic
procurement strategies and support the social
responsibility aspects of procurement; this is
especially important for its impact on the local
business community. Exor enables you to bring
all your local suppliers into a unified purchasing
system, with each supplier approved for contracts
appropriate to their category risk and transaction
value. To help companies that are new to accreditation
the Exor service can be used to implement a staircase
programme; this enables suppliers to continue
to trade with the authority whilst being assisted
in achieving the appropriate levels of accreditation
for their category over an agreed timescale.
Where certain areas of
procurement are to be allocated to Strategic Partners
an Exor database provides the ability to weave
into negotiations a mechanism to identify local
accredited suppliers; this enables the Strategic
Partner to include local suppliers in the execution
of their contracts.
A number of Exor clients
already provide access to their own Accredited
Suppliers to local residents as an added value
service. This has the added benefit of providing
additional value and incentive to suppliers interested
in the consumer market to join the scheme.
from Exor Business Analysts, each PSA decides
on the level of accreditation required for each
category of work or purchase. Typically these
are allocated according to average spend, risk,
local conditions and the desired supplier adoption
Exor provides three levels
of accreditation Bronze, Silver & Gold...
'Gold' level of accreditation enables a
supplier to be considered for any type of procurement
from discretionary purchasing through to OJEC
Silver is applied to medium
risk / value categories & or sub contractors.
The entry level, Bronze,
is applicable to low risk / value categories and
small independent local businesses or as a first
step on PSA specific staircase accreditation programmes.
of the three levels of accreditation has a range
of compliance checks appropriate to the relevant
level of spend; this ensures that local suppliers
can be included in the supplier database for low
value projects whilst major contractors can be
pre-qualified to OJEC standards.
