Public Procurement: How to Maximise Value for Money During Economic Uncertainty

Overview

Public Procurement: How to Maximise Value for Money During Economic Uncertainty 

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?

This event, kindly hosted by Fusion21, will inform practitioners how to maximise outcomes from public procurement exercises focusing 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
