Business Intelligence

The Business Intelligence team offers expert analysis support to London Procurement Partnership and London Procurement Partnership's members

Our analysts work closely with the category management teams to identify savings opportunities for our members. This work includes complex product substitution and rationalisation analysis, supported by extensive research into evidence which enables the category teams to put opportunities into context. 

Our offering to member trusts includes monthly standardised reports, bespoke reports, and ad-hoc analyses we carry out to answer specific questions our clients may have. LPP BI does procurement analytics for the NHS by the NHS, which means we understand our customers’ needs and share their organisational values

The team also works to identify and agree baselines with members which facilitate savings tracking. We also collate and analyse supplier management information to track and report on both savings and lost opportunities.

For the pharmacy sector, our analysts work with both primary and secondary care members to provide monthly benchmarking, savings and cost avoidance data.

NHS LPP collects both accounts payable and purchase order data from each of its members and now has an enviable amount of spend data (in excess of £7bn) which is fed into the annual workplanning process.
