Government Business Awards 2011
We're delighted that two of our partners picked up awards at this year's award ceremony.

Woking Borough Council, has been commended in the 'Local Government Procurement' category for its work to deliver savings from its supplier community.  V4 has been working in partnership with the Council to implement a central Commercial Hub, with a remit to take a whole-council view of non-salary spend and deliver financial savings whilst maintaining or improving frontline services. 

Winner of the 'Revenue Generation' category was Peterborough City Council, recognised for its achievements in generating external income for the Council.  V4 works in partnership with the Council to trade services with other public bodies and develop services to either replace expenditure on external suppliers, a good example of such being the implementation of an internal agency pool of staff or develop new forms of income.
ISO 9001 certification
Following an independent assessment, V4 Services has been awarded ISO 9001 certification.  The standard, which is only held by about 5% of UK businesses and is supported by the Government and recognised world-wide, is endorsement of an organisation’s working practices, procedures and processes.
Adam Jacobs, Managing Director, said: “We’re proud of the services that we deliver for our client base and the way that we conduct our business.  The award of ISO 9001 by external assessors, who are used to judging standards on a daily basis across a wide variety of trades and industries, is confirmation of our approach and methods in place to ensure consistency across the organisation.
“What matters most of all to us is that this approach is reflected in the way that we work with our clients to deliver major change programmes and cost reductions across the public sector.”
Creme de la Creme Business Awards Winner 2011
We’re pleased to announce that our client, Peterborough City Council, has won a Crème de la Crème Business Award for "Outstanding Public Sector Procurement".  V4 has been Peterborough City Council’s ‘transformation delivery partner’ over the past four years and is on target to achieve £48m cumulative savings by March 2011.
Our Commercial Hub model is just one of 80 projects which have been implemented within the council to drive financial savings alongside improved operational, environmental and social performance.
Commenting on Peterborough City Council’s Crème de la Crème Business Award for Outstanding Public Sector Procurement, Simon Burgess, Chairman of the Judges said:
“With the public sector facing harsh cutbacks they need to work smarter and deliver more for less. To help achieve this, the best possible procurement process needs to be in place and Peterborough City Council have gone to great lengths to ensure that this is the case. With savings of over £6 million being delivered directly through the implementation of procurement best practicesthe Council is putting procurement at the centre to drive commercial decisions. An example for many to follow.”
