About this Event

Crown Commercial Service, in partnership with the Yorkshire and Humber Strategic Procurement Group IT Committee, invites you to join us at Doncaster Council Chambers for an interactive event that will provide examples of:

  • How digital technology can help achieve key public service outcomes
  • How to approach the market to get the best results
  • How together we can build a better public digital ecosystem in the north

Hear from peers and engage with partner agencies including Crown Commercial Service, Yorkshire and Humber Strategic Procurement Group, Government Digital Service and public sector delegates from across the north.

Sessions will:

  • Give commissioners an insight into the art of the possible
  • How to effectively use Crown Commercial Service frameworks
  • Have a special focus on the SME experience of responding to tenders and how you can help them deliver the best solution
  • Give examples of where good digital procurement delivers value

There will also be an opportunity to network with peers over morning coffee and tea.
