CPD 2Business managers globally are increasingly being held responsible and accountable for sustainable development. Hence, our next branch event is relevant for procurement professionals and suppliers of the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.

Two speakers will provide delegates with unique insights on the development and rationale for the Community Benefits Measurement Tool which is being implemented in Wales for public contracts. Value Wales, the policy division of Welsh Government has developed an innovative measurement tool which calculates the local multiplier effect of public contracts ensuring that for every pound (£) spent, maximum value is achieved for people living and working in Wales. Welsh Government spend £5.5 billion annually on goods and services. Examples of community benefits achieved from these contracts include recruiting and retraining disadvantaged people in Wales, supporting local community projects and environmental benefits such as reducing carbon and water or waste going to landfill.

CPD 2This event will cover two main topics:

The first will be looking at the first 12 months following the implementation process of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, focussing on some of the most common issues that have arisen for contracting authorities under the new legislation and how those have been dealt with in practice.

The second will focus on a summary of the structure and key aspects of the new Utilities Contracts Regulations 2016 which are in force from 18 April 2016. These have now been brought more closely in line with the PCR 2015 and so contain a number of new provisions that utilities and other entities who award contracts covered by the UCR need to be aware of. They will also potentially benefit from some of the lessons learned from the implementation of the earlier implementation of the PCR 2015.
