Crown Commercial Service

CCS at the Public Sector Show

As the UK’s largest public sector procurement organisation we were delighted to once again support the Public Sector Show in Manchester, and I want to thank everyone who came to our stand or listened to one of our sessions yesterday.

In the main conference theatre I spoke about delivering commercial benefits through better procurement. If you didn’t get a chance join me, here are my slides. 

We also hosted a dedicated CCS theatre where my colleagues presented on a range of topics:

  • David Gigg and Francesca Livesey from our policy implementation team presented a session on using social value criteria to run and evaluate your procurement.
  • Chris Illman and Viv Roberts from our aggregation team spoke about the benefits of collaboration.
  • Steve Carter, Supplier Adoption Lead, spoke about how the Crown Marketplace programme is transforming public procurement with a click.
  • John Malone, Head of Trading and Kate Beckingham, Head of Utilities discussed why customers choose CCS for their utilities & fuels.
