Local Government Commissioning and Procurement Conference
How are you balancing the continuing drive to do more for less with the requirement to find best value for money?
With local authorities still facing intense cost pressures, more innovative approaches are needed now that the low hanging fruit has been picked. The challenge presented by health and social care in particular means that commissioners and procurement professionals need to work together now more than ever.
ONECPD’s second annual Local Government Commissioning and Procurement conference seeks to truly bridge the gap between commissioning and procurement while focusing on strategies to manage the twin priorities of more for less and value for money. With an emphasis on collaboration, the agenda will be built around practical examples on key topics including social value, supplier engagement and commercial skill development. On the eve of Brexit, delegates will also have the opportunity to discuss its impact.
Delegate feedback from last year’s conference includes:
“A good mix of useful presentations and excellent networking opportunities”
“It was informative and useful - gave food for thought to improve work within my own team”
“I came away with some important information and with some ideas to improve my procurement department”
“I liked the bitesize nature of different speakers and gave good insight into several areas in one day”
Researched and developed directly with senior commissioning and procurement professionals, the Local Government Commissioning and Procurement conference has been designed to facilitate understanding and collaboration between the two functions. Offering a mix of practical advice as well as discussion of the strategic issues of driving value and increasing quality, we aim to send delegates home primed with ideas to implement within their organisations.
