Adapting to New Ways of Procurement Virtual Event

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has caused a lot of uncertainty for public sector organisations and the role that procurement can play in assisting with the challenge is great.  In the light of the global outbreak of Covid-19, contracting authorities will need to procure goods, services and works in truly exceptional circumstances. 

To hear from your peers and experts regarding how the procurement function is central to the recovery phase as well as implementation of the various stimulus packages, please watch the recording of the Public Sector Procurement Virtual Event 2020. The presentations and panel session addressed current challenges and offered ideas and solutions for how to address them within your organisations.
