BPAS Contract & Invoicing System

Context The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) is a British reproductive healthcare charity that offers pregnancy counselling, abortion care, miscarriage management, contraception and STI testing to 100,000 women each year via our clinics in England, Wales and Scotland. BPAS provide the majority of its services via contracts with the various Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) that comprise the NHS. The contract duration, range of services provided, and unit pricing can vary for each contract according to the need and local priorities of each CCG. The Business Development Unit (BDU) is responsible for managing the relationship with CCGs. The BDU manage circa 130 separate contracts. The BDU currently rely on separate spreadsheets and shared folders to manage this complex collection of contracts and urgently need a contracts database to consolidate and streamline this activity. The system must also be capable of consolidating activity data with contract pricing to create invoices to send to commissioners or private clients. Outcomes To improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the BPAS Business Development Unit. To improve the availability and accessibility of quality information to inform strategic and operational decisions. To streamline the contract management and invoicing processes to reduce error and administrative effort.
