Do you know your GDS from your GPS? Is your head in the G-Cloud? Join the ip-network as they help demystify Government Procurement.Demystifying Government Procurement 6.00pm, 1st April 2014 University Campus Suffolk, Ipswich Government Procurement can be very confusing and daunting to ICT businesses, with numerous terms such as OJUE, GDS, G-Cloud and GPS adding to the uncertainty. As a result the ip-network along with Suffolk Chamber of Commerce and University Campus Suffolk are inviting you to attend a free seminar to help “Demystify Public Procurement” for local ICT businesses. The seminar will provide speakers from both the client side (local government) and the supply side (successful local businesses) to help explain the various processes, frameworks and catalogues involved. Using an expert panel we will also focus on the G-Cloud framework; its entry process, insights and practical tips for use. With an annual spend of £230billion, public sector procurement has the potential to create significant business and growth opportunities. There have been many announcements and intent by Government to simplify their Procurement Processes and specifically make it easier for the small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to take part. So now is the perfect time to join us and demystify Government Procurement. Places are limited so book now to avoid disappointment. Find out more here.
