managing procurement risks and challenges

9am - 4pm

£125 plus VAT

Have you ever received a letter challenging a regulated procurement procedure? Has your authority ever had proceedings issued against it for breach of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015?

For many authorities the answers to these questions will be ‘yes’ as we see more and more challenges being threatened or made against public authorities following (and even during) procurement processes.

This all day workshop is designed to give you the confidence to understand the pressure points in procurement processes and how they can give rise to risk. The workshop will also look at:

  • how to respond to threatened or actual challenges
  • consider tactics
  • how to deal with the immediate steps required by a challenge without prejudicing the authority’s position and, where necessary, work with external advisors.

This full day course is based around an interactive case study giving delegates the chance to analyse the issues from different perspectives and talk tactics. The workshop is led by our specialist procurement team who are being joined by Patrick Halliday of 11KBW for the Birmingham edition of this event.
