    Cost saving requests and decreasing budgets have highlighted the need for Local Authorities to improve how they manage contracts and specifically how they set objectives for delivery and agree them with contractors through out the lifecycle of the contract. The aim of this seminar is to explain in simple terms how Councils can manage every step of the process from procurement and service delivery to ending a contract and building a reprocurement strategy. The seminar will draw on practical examples and a case study to showcase things one needs to be aware can go wrong and what one should do and not do if this happens.
