Join author Silke Therhaag and Jonathan Dutton with Teresa Nagel from Open Windows as they address the SEVEN key issues behind the latest white paper, ‘Procurement’s Role in Local Government’.

Indeed, it is increasingly a core capability to enable council’s vital services and programme provision. And, as councils aggregate more stakeholders are increasingly concerned with provenance, so the role of procurement will become more crucial to engineering better outcomes in future
