Overview

In December 2020, the Cabinet Office set out proposals that will shape the future of public procurement legislation with the publication of a Green Paper, Transforming Public Procurement.

The overarching goals of these proposals are to speed up and simplify procurement processes, place value for money at their heart, generate social value and unleash opportunities for small businesses, charities and social enterprises to innovate in public service delivery.

Following the UK’s exit from the EU, there is now an opportunity to develop and implement a new procurement regime, moving away from the EU rules-based approach that was designed first and foremost to facilitate the single market and instead adopt a new simplified approach that prioritises boosting growth and productivity in the UK, maximising value for money and social value, promoting efficiency, innovation and transparency.

Free to attend for public sector delegates, the Government Opportunities (GO) Transforming Public Procurement Online Series 2022 will host a range of sector-focused events. Each will provide attendees with an invaluable opportunity to gain an insight into the feedback from the recent market consultations, together with the  Government’s responses and what changes public sector procurement organisations may need to prepare for.
