Procurement after the CSR – CPD Training Event

Together we are Forbes

Thursday 03 February 2011, Village Hotel, Waterfold Business Park, Rochdale Road, Bury, BL9 7DB

In the aftermath of the Comprehensive Spending Review procurement managers are between the rock of client departments looking for the lowest cost solution to their requirements (and a way out when it turns out to have been too good to be true) and the hard place of increasingly litigious disappointed bidders armed with automatic injunctions and lawyers on a no-win-no-fee deal.

Will not choosing the cheapest bid end up in court sooner or later?

What can you do when a contractor lets you down?

Will Courts listen to reason in removing automatic injunctions?

Our Procurement after the CSR event will be an opportunity to receive an update on these issues and to discuss best practice with advisers and other public sector procurement professionals.
