The UK's National Health Service Purchasing and Supply Agency (PaSA) aims to increase the value of its contracts to supply the NHS from £2.3 billion ($3.3 billion) in 2000-01 to £3.7 Billion in 2003-04. PaSA, which plays a central role in purchasing and supply across the NHS, also aims to achieve savings of 5% of contract value each year. Its goals are set out in its first corporate plan, which details the proposed development of purchasing and supply from until March 31 2004.
