Procurement Act 2023 Seminar

This event will provide an opportunity to hear and discuss some of the key changes which will be introduced by the Procurement Act. Aimed at developers, directors, Project managers, contractors and consultants, we will look to examine what are the key changes under the Procurement Act and what do they mean for you. We will also hear from a client, consultant and a contactor about what their plans are in relation to the new legislation.

On the day we will discuss the changes including

· Does price no longer matter? How are wider social or environmental benefits factored into the act and what does that mean for construction procurement.

· What does a ‘fully transparent procurement system’ look like. Exploring the governments vision for transparency, how will this be implemented and how will this information be used by suppliers

· Will the new provisions around the management of public sector help construction contracts run smoothly

· What does debarment mean for you? We will examine the new rules relating to exclusion and the new debarment list, considering how the practice of suppliers and public sector buyers will need to change.

The seminar will also host a panel debate and provide an opportunity for Q&A followed by networking.
