PSE365: Maximising Value: Public Procurement Basics

Procurement is an important driver of technology and innovation, offering the opportunity to transform industry, delivery of public services and communities across the UK. Bringing public procurement on the innovation journey to maximise value in the procurement process is vital to building back better post pandemic.

With the Green Paper highlighting the current procurement process creating high entry costs, causing a fundamental barrier to supporting innovation, exploring how we maximise value is at the top of the public sector agenda.

In this panel discussion, we hear from leaders on how public sector organisations can maximise value through technology and innovation, shape the delivery of public services and contribute to the wider community.

Making up the panel were:

  • Michael Pace, Managing Director, NHS London Procurement Partnership
  • Malcolm Harbour CBE, Assocaite Director, Connected Places Catapult
  • Derk van der Wardt, Consultation and Engagement Manager, Cornwall Council

Webinar: Driving sustainability & value through technology end-of-life

End-of-life is often overlooked yet is equally as important to a digital strategy, but what happens to end-of-life technology? What is the impact on the environment, net zero targets? What is the financial impact, is value for money for the taxpayer simply discarded and destroyed along with the technology?
 

Join us on 13 September between 2:00pm-2:45pm where we look to address the lifecycle of a digital strategy with a focus on end-of-life using examples, achieving efficiency, increased sustainability and delivering cost savings.
