Roundtable on Transforming Public Procurement with the Cabinet Office

Please note, this is a private event, by invitation only. The invitees are carefully selected in line with The Whitehall and Industry Group’s charitable purpose, representing organisations from a variety of sectors, to bring a range of views and perspectives. If you or a colleague would like to be considered to attend, please email us on [email protected]

The ‘Transforming Public Procurement’ green paper, published in December, sets out a number of ambitious proposals to shape the long-term future of public procurement in the UK. We are delighted to be joined by Ed Green, Deputy Director for Commercial Policy: International and Reform in the Cabinet Office, for this senior cross-sector roundtable to discuss the proposals, touching on topics including:

  • How organisations across the sectors can support the government in achieving the goal of speeding up and simplifying procurement processes
  • Ensuring that value for money and transparency are at the heart of public procurement
  • Opportunities for small businesses, charities and social enterprises to innovate in public service delivery
