Letter - CIPR is not alone with procurement guide

New best-practice guidelines are always welcome ('CIPR issues guide to procurement,' 14 July). But consultancies have been well serviced in this area for some time with the PRCA's 2005 guide for procurement professionals, written by Adrian Wheeler and endorsed by CIPS and ISBA. The PRCA has also run courses on procurement since 2002.

Rather than procurement being 'misunderstood' as Francis Ingham states ('Will guide ease procurement woes?,' 14 July), most consultancies welcome the involvement of procurement in the pitching process.

They assist in the setting of boundaries and extend the transparency of budgets.

Mark Mellor, MD, Firefly Communications; and member of CIPR and PRCA Best Practice Committee.
