In recent years, public procurement become more complicated (The Future generation Report, 2020; UK Government Green Paper Report, 2022). The complexity and dynamic environment have created additional pressures on the delivery of the public sector organisations (PSOs) with limited resources (UK Uyarra and Flanagan, 2010; Uyarra, 2010; 2013; Sönnichsen and Clement, 2020; Vecchi et al., 2020). In such a dynamic environment, public management need to focus on short-term opportunities to gain bargaining power to maximise cost reduction and organisational performance (Cox, 2001; 2004; Murray, 2009; Staples and Dalrymple; 2011; Uyarra et al., 2013; Deasy et al., 2014; Uyarra et al., 2014; Vecchi, et al., 2020). Similarly, Loader (2007; 2013) claimed that due to the uncertain economic environment, saving on public spending has become the overriding focus of the PSP.
