Hub Training Seminar

Procurement Legal Challenges: How  to prevent them and how to defend them - 13th May 2016 

Venue: Victoria House, Fulbourn, Cambridge

Hosted by the East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub, this event is FREE to NHS staff and will be led by Mark Robinson, Managing Associate at Trowers & Hamlins LLP. 

About the Seminar

Procurement exercises usually deliver great results - but what happens if they go wrong?

Bidders have remedies under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, but in practice what does a procurement challenge look like, feel like and mean? What are bidders able to achieve? How can you equip yourselves so that the risk of challenge is minimised, you know how to deal with a challenge if one lands on your desk and how to maximise your chances of successfully defending a challenge?

This seminar will also look at the main reasons why challenges are brought, the remedies bidders have available and the tactics they often employ, your options and what case law tells us about how the courts currently apply the Regulations.

Join leading law firm Trowers & Hamlins LLP to find out everything you ever wanted to know about procurement challenges ….and more !

Target audience: Procurement and commercial teams involved in buying works services or supplies under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015
