Regulated procurement can be complicated and having a full understanding of the complexities of regulated procurement legislation is key for procurement practitioners. Our Regulated Procurement Academy is designed to improve your understanding of the Procurement Principles associated with the Public Contract Regulations 2015 and the Utilities Contract Regulations 2016 to how they translate into legislation and applying them in practice.  In addition, proposed changes to existing legislation in the UK Procurement Law Bill will be referenced to ensure delegates gain an understanding of its implications.

Register to attend for a practical overview of our Regulated Procurement Academy programme to gain insight into the Regulated Procurement rules, and the risks that may be created by not applying them.
