ESPO/ISBL procurement workshop

ESPO, in partnership with ISBL will be hosting a series of FREE half day procurement workshops aimed at School Business Managers or anyone within schools or academies with procurement responsibilities.

These workshops are practical, easy to understand and interactive, and by delegates getting involved we ensure they are relevant. By the end of the session you will have a better understanding of your procurement responsibilities, the legal requirements around procurement and the possible impacts of getting it wrong!

• Smarter procurement- Using frameworks as an integral part of your procurement policy.
• Advice and guidance about how to plan and prioritise your procurement around spend levels and procurement thresholds.
• Free to access template documents for Procurement policies and Contract Management
