Procurement Nightmares



University of the West of England, Frenchay Campus, Coldharbour Lane, BRISTOL
United Kingdom


This is the CIPS West of England Launch Event – kicking off with an evening at UWE’s Bristol Business School with sessions focusing on so-called “Procurement Nightmares” we all my face!



Stradia will be presenting 8 cherry picked nightmares (out of their 50) and practical solutions for addressing them. Topics which will be covered, include:

  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Tender Processes
  • Bid Evaluation
  • Contract Management

It will be engaging, relatable and useful for commercial professionals and those with broader interest in business. We hope to see significant interest thereby energising the West of England Branch and reinvigorating this networking and educational group which can and will deliver value to members.

A buffet & refreshments will be provided at 18:25, providing an opportunity for networking.

This free event is for both CIPS members and non-members to attend.
