Spend analysis & recovery services

The statement by Francis Maude and the subsequent mandate that all central government bodies with external spend in excess of £10m per annum, provides clear evidence that duplicate payments represent a significant threat to public sector bodies delivering value to the taxpayer. There can be complacency within large bodies that as payment systems are electronic and have inbuilt controls, there is little risk error. Yet duplicate payments continue to occur.

Weaknesses in accounts payable systems need to be addressed as a matter of priority, to recover what has already been lost and to plug any further leaks.

Moore Stephens is one of five firms on the government’s Crown Commercial Service agreement for spend analysis and recovery services. Our Spend Analysis and Recovery Services will help your organisation deliver true cash savings, generate efficiency improvements in your procurement function and recover spend from your supply chain.
