In February 2015 new public contract regulations were introduced for those operating across the public sector marketplace in England.

Consortium Procurement would like to make sure our members fully understand those changes and feel confident that they are complying with them. We are also seeing a lot of activity in the courts, with the first ever judgement in July that a contract cannot be awarded and with the courts scrutinising evaluation criteria and marking to a level never envisaged.

We have teamed up with DAC Beachcroft LLP to bring to you a half-day session which will update you about the key changes and their practical implications on the housing sector so that, whether you are thinking as a buyer or a seller, you can understand the implications for your business and how to manage them.

The UK government are one of the earliest adopters of the new EU Directive on public procurement through the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. It is important for us that our members feel confident about their next procurement steps, ensuring high levels of social value and value for money are kept and maintained.

Ruth Connorton, who will lead the session, heads the national procurement law practice at DAC Beachcroft and is an experienced commercial lawyer, having worked in the field for over 20 years. She regularly speaks at national training events for trade associations, clients and training providers and is ranked as a leading practitioner in the field by Chambers’ legal directory which comments that she is “an excellent lawyer with lots of experience and practical solutions to our difficult procurement problems”.

Early bookings are highly recommended as space is limited and we can only accommodate a maximum of 20 people.
