Supplier Incentive Programme – Oxygen Finance working with Barnsley MB Council
Posted on 28th November, 2018
Local Government Sector funding is in decline. This means all local government services need to be reviewed and delivered in different and more innovative ways. Barnsley in South Yorkshire is known for being a coal mining and glassmaking town, however the town is growing up fast. Despite a tough economic situation in the UK, a huge £50m regeneration is underway in the town centre.
The Council has always looked to change and innovate how it delivers its services to members of the public and businesses alike, despite major cuts in Government funding. One such example which has recently been reviewed is the Council’s Purchase-to-Pay processes. The Council is taking the lead in building important relationships with local businesses and suppliers. It has identified how the simple act of paying invoices early is turning Barnsley into a role model for economic regeneration across the UK.
At the same time, the council is generating income for the local authority to contribute towards the vital services that the people of Barnsley really need.
