We can’t get together yet and we miss meeting up with you for our regular Procurement Updates. You tell us that you still like to hear about recent developments in public procurement and you appreciate the detailed sessions we have provided at previous events, on hot topics.
We are proposing something a bit different this time round: a Summer Public Procurement Bootcamp where we will be splitting the review into two sections:
PART 1 - The Bootcamp
Starting on Monday 28 June, we will send you four updates which will be approximately 20 minutes a day for four days in a row to bring you up to speed.
We will start with our usual roundup of policy and case law news. We will then spend time discussing issues and challenges we see arising regularly in the context of evaluation of tenders. You will be able to email us questions arising from those sessions during the Bootcamp week.
By signing up to The Bootcamp, we will send you the link to that day’s Bootcamp event every day during week 1. If you miss the 11am video, you'll still be able to view each day of Bootcamp 'On Demand' at a suitable time for you.
Monday 28 June - Roundup of recent developments – policy and case law*
Speakers: Susie Smith and Emily Heard
*Note: We will be running separate events when the Cabinet Office publishes the outcomes of the Consultation Green Paper: Transforming public procurement.
Tuesday 29 June - Evaluation – choosing the evaluation criteria and scoring methodology
Speakers: Trevor Watt and Victoria Croshaw
Wednesday 30 June - Evaluation – conducting the scoring and moderation process
Speakers: Kyle Duggan and Catherine Maddox
Thursday 1 July - Evaluation – documenting the evaluation process
Speakers: Jessica Boardman and Fran Mussellwhite

PART 2 - The Webinar
The following week on 6 July we will hold a LIVE Q&A webinar where Emily Heard and Fran Mussellwhite will address the issues raised during the Bootcamp week.

Please note that registration for each webinar will close when the webinar starts, so please do ensure you have booked your place in advance to guarantee your attendance.
Please be aware that places for this seminar are limited and may get over subscribed.
