This event has now finished.

Join us in our Coventry office to discuss how Procurement can help you to respond to the challenges the housing sector is facing following the measures outlined in the July Budget, the Housing & Planning Bill and the forthcoming Comprehensive Spending Review.

From exploring how to ensure your organisation achieves value for money from its purchasing activities to analysing spend and implementing category management we will be discussing the key things to consider when strategically purchasing goods and services. What’s more, we will share how our approach to Procurement has delivered savings of over £15m for Orbit Group and other social landlords as part of the Service Matters Procurement consultancy offer.

There will be increasing divergence between those landlords which are able to rise to the current challenges and focus on Procurement as a driver of sustainable savings and value for money to ensure that every penny leads to tangible social outcomes for their customers and communities.
