24 April

Procurex Live

Join our CEO Malcolm Harrison in the keynote arena at the upcoming Procurex Live on 24 April at Manchester Central, where he will be discussing transforming government growth. He will also be joining a lunchtime panel debate about marketing procurement and marketing yourself.

Plus, we’ll be hosting a CCS showcase, giving you a chance to hear from:

  • Nick Caton, Commercial Director, Public Sector on understanding sectors, what we’ve learned and how we’ve changed in the last 12 months
  • Niall Quinn, Commercial Director, Technology and Steve Hall, Ark Data Centres on no more excuses for not moving to the cloud. The government’s Cloud First policy has been designed to help drive efficiencies, in both cost and performance. Learn how the partnership between CCS and Crown Hosting Data Centres can help you achieve your goals
  • David Gigg, Policy Implementation will be providing an update on procurement policy and what you need to know. Including how social value has changed the landscape for designing procurements and how we are making CCS frameworks compliant with social value policy; how CCS is tackling issues such as modern slavery, equality and accessibility; and how CCS is getting ready for GDPR – and, importantly, what you need to do
  • Francesca Pomlett, Senior Policy Advisor, on making bidding easier. We’ve all heard our buyers and suppliers complain about the difficulty of working with government contracts as ‘they’re too long, too hard to read, too difficult to use’. Hear how we are changing the way our contracts are written and structured so buyers and suppliers will find them simpler to use, and we will find it easier to build and refine them.

On our stand you will also find an advice bar so you can drop in to discuss your procurement issues with our commercial specialists, and share your thoughts and ideas on how we can best support you.

The event is free for public sector buyers to attend. Register now.
