Public Spend Forum – Public Procurement Highlights from this Week

Public Spend Forum (PSF) is a public sector procurement global community and market intelligence platform dedicated to improving public procurement and the public sector market. It tackles universal public procurement issues and on its website you will find articles, podcasts, opinion pieces, discussion trails and news stories.

Recent highlights include:

In Public Spend Forum’s webinar, they discuss the cyber landscape in the public sector and share tips for government contracting professionals on how to buy.
