Is it right for me?


Public procurement in the UK is constantly being adjusted to try and ensure greater efficiency and deliver improved value for money.  Brexit may lead to UK procurement policy differing from EU regulations, and new technology may lead to other significant changes.  This course will examine some of the current trends and potential future changes.  It is ideally suited for those who have previously attended Introduction to public sector procurement and Applying the public procurement regulations.


What key points will the training cover?


  • Recent guidance and themes in government
  • Electronic procurement
  • Social and environmental procurement
  • Brexit and everything after
