Procurement reform to promote SMEs? Find out at the Hays/Gateley Procurement Seminar on 3 October 2013

As the Manchester Evening News reports on Government plans to promote the SME share of public procurement spend and as EU procurement legislative reform threatens to create a conducive environment for that sort of activity, it seems like a good moment to remind you all about the Hays/Gateley seminar which is taking place on 3 October 2013.

We will be looking at the agreed reforms to the EU procurement directives and explaining the practical impacts and opportunities for buyers and suppliers alike.

We will also be giving some practical tips on how to prevent, respond to and manage challenges to procurement processes and decisions in the era of contract ineffectiveness.

The seminar will take place at our offices at Ship Canal House, 98 King Street, Manchester M2 4WU from 8:30 to 10:30 on 3 October 2013 and the Blog’s own David Vayro will be speaking.

If you want to know more please contact David ( or Holly Carty (

We hope to see you there!
