SFHA Procurement Conference to focus on sustainable and effective practice
18 March, Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh.
Aligning with the SFHA Development Conference's focus on green infrastructure, this year’s Procurement Conference will look at sustainable and effective procurement practice.
We must use all possible levers to tackle what the Scottish Government has now declared a climate emergency – and procuring from organisations that have prioritised sustainability as a core value should be a key consideration for everyone.
Conference sessions will explore how to adapt procurement practice to meet environmental benefits and how you can work with other socially responsible businesses.
The event will also discuss how RSLs can best drive meaningful community benefits and impactful social value contributions in their localities through effective procurement, and delegates will hear examples of how this has worked in practice.
Other sessions will also look at effective procurement practice. This will include examples of RSLs that are working in collaboration on procurement and case studies of those who have taken a proactive approach to contract management and tender specification.
Delegates will also hear from leading procurement experts on the key procurement issues and considerations for the year ahead – and beyond.
The Procurement Conference is taking place at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh on 18 March and directly follows the Development Conference which is taking place on 17 March at the same venue.
The delegate fees for both conferences start at £229 for SFHA members (£319 for non-members), which includes attendance, lunch and all refreshments.
When you book to attend both events, the cost is £395 – a saving of £63.00.
If you book three places, you can and bring a colleague for free.
