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. It will require a one-off, quick registration to view them. Please join us – follow the links in the summaries below.

Global Public Procurement Community – Progress And Next Steps On Public Spend Forum

Last week, Public Spend Forum founder and CEO Raj Sharma was over from Washington DC visiting the UK. While he was here we took the opportunity to hold a webinar to give PSF members and anyone interested (solution providers, or other suppliers to the public sector as well as practitioners) an update on progress this year, both in the US and beyond. Peter Smith joined the discussion, and you can listen to the webinar here which explains what the US has achieved so far and what we can practically do to mirror those efforts here, with questions from the audience.

Procurement Collaboration – More On Our New Paper

We recently announced the publication of our Public Spend Forum research paper, very kindly sponsored by our friends at BravoSolution, and titled simply but accurately, Procurement Collaboration in the UK Public Sector.  The research work was carried out earlier this year, and involved an on-line survey and then a series of structured interviews that Peter undertook with UK procurement leaders who had experience with collaboration in its various forms. The report looks at how collaboration is perceived across the public sector, and provides some thoughts and recommendations in terms of how it might be improved.
