Implementing the National Procurement Strategy: how the latest technology can help drive economic growth, community wellbeing and the transition to carbon net zero
July 15 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
At their heart, public services ensure that people stay safe and healthy, that they have the freedom and resources to learn and thrive, and that the places where they live and work are clean, sustainable and connected. As a result, public sector bodies are increasingly focusing on the environmental impact of their services, alongside the social and economic impacts, and what actions the sector can take to address the climate crisis.
Against the backdrop of the National Procurement Strategy, this free event will explore how frontier technology can help public sector bodies achieve their goals to deliver better outcomes for the citizens and communities they serve, as they move towards economic growth and start to meet net zero targets.
The event is being hosted by the CIPFA CPRAS Technology Procurement Association (CCTPA), a collaboration between CIPFA and the Cost and Procurement Advisory Service (CPRAS).
The CCTPA’s purpose is to help public sector bodies identify and utilise innovative high-tech solutions to reduce procurement costs and risk, saving valuable time, increasing efficiencies, and delivering value to taxpayers.
The webinar will briefly discuss the Strategy, and we will hear about some of the challenges from the front line of public services. Our speakers will introduce some of the technology that is already available, and some solutions it might offer. And we will open the floor for discussion about specific challenges you may face, to share ideas and get the conversation moving in this series of CCTPA technology webinars.
