Following on from our 'Contract Management in the wake of COVID-19' webinar in July (available to watch on demand), Olivia Carter and Liz Fletcher held the latest webinar in this series 'COVID-19 Supplier Relief: the transition phase'.
With the government's easing of restrictions, the UK is reflecting on the new normal and what this looks like in the longer term. After the initial response to COVID-19 and the granting by public bodies of extensive supplier relief, management of contracts must now begin the transition away from supplier relief towards a sustainable future taking into account the new realities brought about by COVID-19. In this webinar we discussed the approach and timing for transition planning and the challenges that contracting authorities may face, followed by a Q&A session.
The session had a specific focus on contract management within local authorities but with content of relevance to all public sector bodies.
