The Contract Purchasing & Finance (CP&F) programme is about the provision of an end to end eProcurement system and associated business processes which span the commercial, purchasing and financial accounting functions for the department. As an extension to this it includes the provision of more complete, reliable and accurate management information.
The programme is being rolled out in phases, starting with Release 2 which was the finance functionality, this happened in December 2016. Then Release 3, which is demand capture and contract management, this was implemented to different teams from May 2018 through to December 2018. And Release 4 which will cover sourcing is due to start in the second half of 2019.
