It’s a tough time to work in public procurement. As the uncertainty of Brexit looms, procurement teams remain under pressure to achieve value for money - whilst managing already stretched budgets.

So how can teams ensure they are getting the most bang for their buck - securing greater efficiency savings plus wider social outcomes?

Kindly hosted by Fusion21, this event is for CIPS and Fusion21 members working in public procurement roles only, and will inform practitioners how to maximise outcomes from public procurement exercises. The session will focus on:


  • Preparing for the uncertainty of Brexit; understanding the risk it poses to public procurement and its wider impact
  • How to achieve increased value for money including via a framework approach covering:
  • Securing cost certainty, cost avoidance and efficiency savings
  • The challenges of keeping materials and labour costs down
  • Evaluating the wider impact of spend decisions
  • Social value generation
  • Advantages and outcomes of effective supply relationship management
  • The benefits of managing contractor performance
  • Monitoring the financial stability of your supply chain
