Description

Local Government Chronicle’s Intelligent Public Procurement conference will examine the Spending Review in detail. It will provide practical advice on how your authority can tighten-up its procurement practices.

This vital conference brings together some of the leading names in local government procurement. They will share their best practice procurement strategies with you:

Chris Allison, Head of Procurement, EAST RIDING OF YORKSHIRE COUNCIL
Colin Whitehouse, Chair, NATIONAL e-PROCUREMENT PROJECT
Wayne Baxter, Head of Procurement, LEEDS CITY COUNCIL
Terry Cotton, Assistant Director of Corporate Finance, WESTMINSTER CITY COUNCIL

These experts will outline how they have achieved greater control of the purchasing process, and reaped huge time and cost savings. They will offer you vital hints and tips on how to make the transition in your procurement practices. Attending will enable you to learn how to…

* Identify the targets and key procurement issues that you need to address
* Improve your authority’s contractual procedures

* Develop a business case for e-Procurement to support your
e-Procurement strategy
* Gain support for new processes
* Make your authority easier to do business with

All of this new knowledge will enable you to return to your authority prepared to move away from devolved procurement practices.

Ian Carter, Senior Manager, Local Government Performance and Improvement at the AUDIT COMMISSION will outline the proposals for assessing value for money, and the proposals for CPA 2005.
