    Knowledge

    The CIPS Public Sector Specialist Knowledge Group members work daily in the public sector, with this comes the operational and strategic experiences and knowledge of a procurement role.

    Our members aim to share good practice and guidance that has brought about a solution within their working role. The information that the group chooses to share represents their passion for procurement and the desire to support like minded professionals who may work within the Public sector who can seek to embed some of the content into their own working roles.

    Events

    The CIPS Public Sector Specialist Knowledge Group will aim to meet quarterly in London and give access to remote dial in, to hold an open forum, discuss and exchange best practice and guidance relevant to their sector and the procurement profession.
