managing procurement risks and challenges

  • 26 Jun 2019
  • Exeter office, 1st Floor, The Mount, 72 Paris Street, Exeter, EX1 2JY

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.

The full day course delivered by members of our specialist procurement team will be built on an interactive case study.

In addition to the above our team will provide you with practical hints and tips to implement at the outset of procurement processes and to bring challenges to a swift conclusion as well as being on hand to answer your niggling queries on all things challenge related.
