LAPV – vehicle procurement forum – Edgbaston Cricket Ground – March 26, 2014
Published: 23 January, 2014
Procurement of public sector fleet and maintenance in the UK can be perceived as a convoluted process that doesn't always lead to the desired outcome for suppliers and manufacturers or for the end-user. The tendering process is complicated and expensive for all parties involved. In short, is the current procurement process putting fear of challenge and OJEU compliancy ahead of the real value that should be achieved?
As the leading publication in the local authority vehicle market, LAPV has canvassed many different opinions on the subject and during 2014 we are determined to improve standards, communication and ultimately the whole process involved during the acquisition of fleet and maintenance for public sector and contracting organisations.
We are aiming to invite key representatives from all tiers of local government – fleet and transport managers, procurement managers and other people involved in the procurement process to take part in a forum, in which current challenges will be discussed. In addition, we will be inviting the top industry suppliers and in this manner create a platform on which knowledge can be exchanged and where current legislation can be clarified.
Therefore, on March 26, 2014 at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham, LAPV will host a FREE to attend event designed to deliver better procurement practice for the future.
The day will be split into a series of best practice case study presentations followed by a roundtable debate / panel discussion with the audience on the main topics raised during the day and ways to improve the existing situation. A full report will be published in LAPV June 2014, but all attendees will have insight into the content before publication.
We would like to invite people involved in the procurement of fleet and maintenance in public sector and its contracting organisations to attend the LAPV procurement forum as we think it is a crucial step in delivering a better system of procurement for the future and your input is essential to us.
Numbers are limited so please indicate you interest with us as soon as possible. To take part, please contact Ann-Marie Knegt: at email@example.com.
We look forward to hearing from you.
