Public Spend Forum Europe – Public Procurement Highlights from this Week

Public Spend Forum is dedicated to public sector procurement and aims to be a global community and knowledge network for improving public procurement and the public sector market. In Europe alone, we are talking about well over a trillion Euros of money from taxpayers and citizens being spent by governments and public sector bodies. Worth doing well, you might consider.

Part of the PSF site is dedicated to Europe-related issues, and that is where you will find our articles and news stories from this week, and, on this occasion, from the holiday period. It will require a one-off, quick registration to view them. Please join us – follow the links in the summaries below.
