The Welsh Assembly government is set to adopt an e-procurement system to simplify transactions and boost savings.

The system, to be launched in spring, is part of the Welsh procurement website XChangeWales. It will enable public sector buyers to purchase goods and services online including stationery, books for schools and temporary staff.

The Welsh government hopes to increase collaboration between buyers and suppliers and increase savings and partnerships with private sector firms as a result.

Andrew Davies, minister for finance and public service delivery, said in a statement: "This programme, available at no charge to suppliers, has the potential to deliver up to £200 million of savings over five years. This money can be reinvested back into better citizen-focused services."

This system will be provided by e-procurement firm ProcServe.
