About Connectted Procurement
Connected Procurement is a sector led initiative to develop and grown the community of procurement professionals, to keep colleagues up to date on hot topics, changing legislation and opportunities and to create space to think through the challenges facing procurement professionals.
The Yorkshire Purchasing Organisation (YPO) is helping ensure the viability of the network, working with colleagues in iNetwork.
The network is open to anyone who’s organisations are members of iNetwork, which includes almost all councils, NHS, Police and Fire & Rescue organisations in the North West and many in Yorkshire & Humberside. A full list of members is available at http://i-network.org.uk/membership/public-sector-members
Who should attend?
Heads of procurement, senior procurement and commissioning officers, procurement policy leads and transformation and policy leads in Local Public Service organisations which are members of iNetwork (see http://i-network.org.uk/membership/public-sector-members/)
