P4P Roadshow Aberdeen

Summary

 

Partnership for Procurement (P4P) is a new initiative funded through the Scottish Government’s 10 Year Social Enterprise Strategy; supporting social enterprises and third sector organisations to build partnerships and consortia and better access public contracts and other contracting opportunities. 

Join us at the first P4P Roadshow event in Aberdeen on 30th October at the Town House, delivered jointly with Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Shared Procurement Service. The event is a fantastic opportunity to speak to the team about the range of services P4P offers, learn about the changes for supported business and find out more about the ‘refreshed’ RfB Third Sector Register.

During the session, you will hear about the impact of the sustainable procurement duty and the councils’ commitment on supplying to the public sector, including:

  • How procurement processes can be used to improve the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of the local area, deliver community benefits and value for money
  • How the process can facilitate the involvement of SMEs, third sector organisations and supported businesses
  • Examples of third sector organisations successfully bidding for, and delivering contracts.

  

When:   30 October 2017

Where:  Aberdeen Town House, Broad St, Aberdeen, AB10 1AH 

Time:   0930hrs to 1400hrs
