Webinar - Delivering Commercial and Social Value Through Procurement

Updated: Dec 8, 2021

The UK public sector spends over £290 billion per year on goods and services. For local authorities, procurement provides a key opportunity to deliver benefits locally to the communities that they serve.

An effective procurement service can be a key tool in an organisation’s success. Separately, where a procurement service is not optimised or commercially minded, this can lead to overly complex and bureaucratic services and internal tensions with services.

Peopletoo and Human Engine jointly hosted this session to explore how local government can use procurement and commissioning to deliver both commercial and social value.

Key areas of discussion:

✔️ Integrating commissioning, procurement and contract management

✔️ Delivering policy through procurement for example social value, climate change, Brexit etc.

✔️ Increasing commercial and social value through procurement, commissioning and contract management

The Panel

✅ Cllr Chris Hossack, Leader, Brentwood Borough Council (Chair)

Jonathon Noble, Managing Director, Human Engine

Rosie Thomas-Easton, Service Manager, Peopletoo
