Development & Procurement Conference – Bookings Now Open!
This year’s SFHA Development & Procurement Conferences are taking place on the 12 & 13 of February at the DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Central.
The annual SFHA Development Conference will look at how housing associations can build on their successes to ensure that they meet Scotland’s housing needs today and in the future. The conference will also explore the wider social value of quality affordable housing, and look at support for new build developments to increase the social, environmental and health benefits provided by quality affordable housing.
As the housing association sector works to meet the Scottish Government’s ambitious 50,000 homes by 2021 target, the conferences will look at the progress to meeting that target; beyond 2021; innovation and modernisation and delivering better places. The conference will also be a chance to hear details of the SFHA initiatives that support housing associations as thoughts turn to what housing and new build affordable housing will look like in the future.
The third annual SFHA Procurement Conference will look at the main strands of work to improve public sector procurement and how this has affected housing associations. The conference will ask what the major challenges are, what the opportunities for housing associations are and what support is available from the SFHA, its partners and the Scottish Government.
The conference will also look at the review of the procurement in public sector construction, procurement frameworks, procurement capability assessments, collaborative procurement, issues on terminology used on the European Single Procurement Document (ESPD), challenges and the shape of the future including Brexit and much more!
The conference will also see the launch of a Community Benefits Guide for Housing Associations, written by SFHA and Scotland Excel.
Both conferences take place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Central with the Development Conference on the 12 February and the Procurement Conference on the 13 February. Delegate fees start at £219 for SFHA members for both conferences.
