The government's new Procurement Bill, which will reform public sector purchasing regulations, has started its progress through Parliament. The bill is set to regulate the way frameworks operate, deliver a shift to contract awards based on social value and see greater spending with SME's.

Urbano is hosting this event online with Urbano Members Trowers & Hamlins and features as main speaker Rebecca Rees, their Partner and Head of Public Procurement who will provide insight and practical knowledge on the new regime, including detailing the changes to procurement procedures designed to encourage SMEs to tender for - and win - a greater share of public sector work.

Joining the panel facilated by Mark Herring, Urbano's Connector-In-Chief, will be Alan Heron, Director of Procurement at Places for People on how PfP help SME's find opportunities within its supply chain and Sarah Collins, Technical MD at RIFT R&D (Urbano Community Supporters), who will demonstrate how your tendering costs can be claimed back using R&D tax credits.
