for Accommodation, Meetings & Events

Public Sector Savings

BSI is working hand-in-hand with public sector travel managers to help them adopt strategies to minimise impact from budget cuts and achieve the sustainable results required in these challenging times.

Low cost and multiple distribution channels result in some of the industry’s lowest pricing for BSI public sector clients and cost effective solutions are being delivered without compromising on quality.  We are helping public sector clients optimise the management of spend by going back to basics and following some simple steps:

  • Challenging policy with regular reviews
  • Breaking down the booking process
  • Identifying the opportunities for improvement
  • Redefining the selection criteria for accommodation (based on value, total cost of stay & duty of care) rather than ‘named’ hotels
  • Consolidating the number and type of hotels, venues and properties used in order to further drive down costs
  • Developing benchmarking strategies to ensure that rates remain competitive during the life cycle of the contract
  • Building policies back up with best practice technology, buying practices and processes
  • Critically evaluating existing ordering and invoicing processes and co-develop a more efficient systems
  • Ensuring policy communication programmes are effective
  • Measuring compliance and savings results via reporting through payment solutions
BSI’s cost avoidance models are also reaping rewards for public sector clients.  By reviewing the potential of strategies for managing the optimising internal meetings space, developing and implementing robust travel authorisation processes, cost reduction opportunities of serviced apartments and online visual guilt for bookings made in the online booking tool
