Commissioning Academy Alumni: Art of Possible in Procurement


Local authorities and other public bodies are looking for new solutions to save money and produce better outcomes.  Sometimes custom and practice and the interpretation of regulations get in the way.

The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 provide commissioners with a great deal of flexibility to achieve better citizen outcomes. Hear about these flexibilities, how to unlock them and the practical things that can be achieved within the scope of the law.  

Gain insights from legal experts and providers:

  • how to respond to innovative propositions from social suppliers that can save money and improve outcomes
  • the issues of application that go beyond the regulations in commissioning innovation
  • concrete examples of innovative approaches that tackle complex social issues 

Enjoy learning and networking with the PSTA Partners and Commissioning Academy Alumni.

The event is hosted by BrowneJacobson and the content is based on the E3M publication: The Art of the Possible in Public Procurement jointly written by public benefit lawyers Bates Wells Braithwaite and the award winning social business, HCT Group. Copies of the publication will be made available to all participants.
