The public sector spends more than £230 billion on goods and services each year, which private sector organisations can capitalise on.
In order to win business, it is essential that you understand how the public sector operates, and prepare yourself for important changes to public sector procurement, such as the new Supply Chain Visibility Public Procurement Policy Note and Consultation on Prompt Payment by Government suppliers.
By developing invaluable contacts with key stakeholders, securing senior buy-in and understanding how the public sector works; your company will be in a much more competitive position when it comes to winning work.
This A Guide to a Public Sector Mindset course has been specifically tailored for the private sector. Led by public sector supply management expert Martin Murphy, this course will give your business the necessary skills and tools to win business from the public sector.
