London local authorities spend over £15 billion on day-to-day services and investment across a range of services such as education, housing, social care, waste, transport and leisure.  Close to £9 billion of this is purchased through contracts and third party expenditure.

In 2010, London’s Leaders set up the London Procurement Strategy Board (LPSB) to take forward a London procurement strategy with the overall aim of exploiting the significant purchasing power in London local government.

London Councils is working alongside LPSB, the London Heads of Procurement (LHOPN) and other senior officers across London's local authority service areas and directorates to ensure procurement plays a key role in helping local authorities to continue to deliver effective and efficient services, particularly against the current financially challenging backdrop.
