Half-day procurement workshops - In partnership with NASBM

Published on 03/11/2015

ESPO, in partnership with NASBM, will be hosting a series of half day procurement workshops aimed at School Business Managers or anyone within schools or academies with procurement responsibilities.
By the end of the session you will have a good understanding of procurement responsibilities, the legal requirements around procurement and the possible impacts of getting it wrong and how to avoid this.
More importantly you will learn about how procurement can be made easier, about the many free to access, compliant frameworks that are already in place for you to use, and learn more about the free procurement support that is available to help you. You will also take away a copy of our schools procurement toolkit packed with help and advice.
If you have a particular procurement related project or question you can also book a free one to one appointment with a member of the ESPO team straight after the workshop.
