Public procurement can be complicated, and having a full understanding of the complexities of regulated procurement legislation is key for procurement practitioners. Our Public Sector Academy is designed to improve your understanding of the principles and objectives of the regulated procurement legislation. We cover the fundamentals of the Treaty Principles and Regulated Directives, how they translate into legislation and applying them in practice.

Register for free to watch the recording for a practical overview of the Achilles Public Sector Academy programme to gain insight into the Regulated Procurement rules, and the risks implied by not applying them.
