Shropshire Council

As a council we spend over £200 million with external contractors, so it’s important that we get on the top of who we’re spending with and try and get different efficiencies out of that. 

“In order to meet funding gaps, we’re part of that solution for the council in trying to drive out efficiencies in savings from our contract arrangements. We use Illuminator to inform our commissioning and procurement decisions. We find that it provides us with good, clean and quick data. It gives us time, it gives us resource efficiency and it provides assurance around our contracting arrangements. I would certainly recommend it to be used by other local authorities as they would gain the same advantages and efficiencies in resource that we are doing.”
