Transforming Public Procurement - An Essential Update
This virtual classroom seminar will provide an up-to-date overview of the Procurement Bill and what has been significantly changed in the House of Lords.
A must for anyone who practises public procurement law and practice, the seminar will also identify key changes to the current law, an overview of the numerous aspects which are still unclear with practical predictions about what increasing transparency and more focussed evaluation matrices will mean.
Delivered by a solicitor who is a procurement expert with many years of practical expertise in the sector, it will include practical tips on what this means for existing and new procurements and how to plan now for the new law.
What You Will Learn
This live and interactive session will cover the following:
- What the Bill now says - an overview as it goes through the House of Commons
- Key similarities and differences to the current law
- What the proposed changes will mean for practitioners - although the language and approach are different (e.g. with more in schedules) will practitioners find that the changes are really radical and remove complexity (e.g. because of the increased transparency requirements)?
- Devolution to Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, what flexibilities will be possible and when devolution be implemented?
- Unanswered questions and issues because the bill is an outline (e.g what will this mean for ‘light touch’ including children’s services and NHS as procurement law may be disapplied to these)
- Next steps - the timetable to legislation and implementation process
