The current global economic downturn represents a major challenge to public sector organisations, yet there remains an assumption that English local government procurement strategy developed during a period of economic boom, is appropriate during the recession. This paper challenges that assumption and sets out a procurement strategy which could accelerate economic recovery. The strategy advocated can be tested and the lessons learnt utilized in other countries or during future periods of economic downturn.
