Council-Led Housing Forum – Effective Procurement

This session is aimed at bringing staff responsible for development and procurement together to explore how the need for effective and efficient procurement works when delivering new council housing.

We will look at the types of procurement that take place in the various stages of the development process. This includes procuring architects, specialist consultants, employers agents and contractors. We’ll consider procurement strategy, structures and how to get a good outcome for delivery, referencing the use of panels and frameworks, as well as the continued use of Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) processes.

This session will offer delegates:

  • An exploration of the various points in development that involve procurement
  • An opportunity to explore how effective procurement decisions are made
  • Insight from other boroughs, including good practice and lessons learned
  • The potential for cross borough working and networking

The event will be run on Chatham House rules: participants will be encouraged to share approaches that work well and ones they would do differently.

The event is in Zoom and will involve working groups, so you will need to have both your video and audio on to fully participate. Please email if you would like to join but are unable to use video and/or audio.

When: Tuesday 30 March, 9:30 am to 12:00 pm
