Improvement of the procurement of goods and services, achieving value for money, and a continuous improvement approach to commercial delivery are all ways in which public services are being tranformed. We will be joined by Jim Carter, Transformation Director in the Government Commercial Function, Cabinet Office, and former Commercial Director at Network Rail. Jim has spent 18 months implementing the capability programme across 17 Central Government Departments, and now focuses on extending services to arm’s-length bodies and other public sector organisations. Alan Shepherd, Head of Commercial Capability at the Department for Work and Pensions, is a Commercial Specialist that is going through the programme as a participant, who will give his unique and candid experience as a customer of the services.
The event will take place at the Institute for Government, 2 Carlton Gardens, London, SW1Y 5AA. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
