Has the NI Finance Minister been listening to the Gateley Autumn Procurement Seminar??

In the wake of criticism from the NIAO, demands for action from political opponents and the announcement of a wide ranging review of public procurement, Sammy Wilson has restated the Northern Ireland Executive’s commitment to use public procurement ads tool to stimulate growth.

The Minister said: “The public sector is open for business and we want to encourage local firms to participate in government procurement. Evidence demonstrates that the public sector is not beyond the reach of smaller firms.”

As regular readers of the blog will know, the current round of Gateley construction and procurement seminars features a presentation by David Vayro entitled “The Public Sector is still open for business – tips for SMEs”.

It’s good to know that people in high places are listening….
