Procurement/Meet the Buyer Event at Surrey Business Expo
Over 70 business delegates attended a free procurement event at Surrey Business Expo, Surrey Sports Park on Wednesday 14 June 2017.
Organised by the Council, in conjunction with the University of Surrey, the networking breakfast looked at best practice bidding and procurement opportunities in relation to the two organisations.
Discussions recognised that increasing the amount of procurement into the local supply chains is part of the Government's industrial strategy, and both organisations have significant purchasing power.
Leader of the Council, Paul Spooner, launched the event and presentations were given by Steve White, Director of Resources; Nathaniel Burrows, Procurement Officer; and Colin Davies, Director of Procurement at the University of Surrey.
