Lean to speed up government procurement

Today, April 7th, I received a public sector Tender Alert as follows:

Lean consultancy support as part of a programme to accelerate and streamline the process and practice of government procurement by reducing timelines, simplifying the process, lowering suppliers’ bid costs and encouraging more of industry, including SMEs to compete for gonvernment (sic) work.

And, the deadline for submission of responses: April 6th!

Clearly, they’ve decided to practise “reducing timelines” immediately.  Don’t hold your breath.
