The LGA Procurement Partner Pavilion
The Local Government Procurement Partner Pavilion hosted by LGA gives delegates the opportunity to engage directly with key buying organisations and professional organisations all involved in shaping local government procurement policy.
LGA are very much looking forward to meeting delegates on our stand at LGPE. We would love to hear from you in three particular areas though and have arranged for our relevant experts to be around at the following times.
Our first focussed session at 10.30 – 11.30 will focus on Strategic Supplier Management, come and learn about how we are working with local government’s main suppliers to deliver better social and financial value with existing suppliers by improving interaction between buyers and suppliers to their mutual benefit. How can we collaborate on a national basis with other councils who are buying similar services or commodities from the same supplier(s)? come along and meet our supplier management experts and discuss how you can get involved.
We will be focussing on Innovation at 12.00 – 13.00 – come along and speak to Malcolm Harbour CBE about the work we are doing on encouraging innovation in local government procurement, tell us about how you do this in your council.
Finally, we are focusing on skills between 13.30 and 14.30. Come along and meet Eddie Gibson from EELGA and Mark Roberts from the Government Commercial Function to hear about how you can access masterclasses and share knowledge on commercial skills.
You can also meet with representatives from our event partners:
