Making Procurement Work for All – Procurement practices as a route to fulfilling work in North East England

12th November 2018, 10:00 to 13:00, Darwin Suite, International Centre for Life, Times Square, Newcastle, NE1 4EP

Dr. Deborah Harrison and Phillip Edwards of the Institute for Local Governance (ILG) have just completed a report for the Carnegie Trust UK on public sector procurement as a route to fulfilling work. The report, which will be launched on 12 November 2018 explores opportunities and challenges in pursuing ‘good growth’ commissioning and procurement in the North East. In particular, it focuses on the implementation of ‘social value’ via increased opportunities for low income households and young people entering the labour market. See attached.

The event is free to attend, but places are limited and they tend to book up quickly, so please register your attendance via Janet Atkinson, Institute for Local Governance, Durham University:

The Institute for Local Governance is a North East Research and Knowledge Exchange Partnership established in 2009 comprising the North East region’s Universities, Local Authorities, Police, and Fire and Rescue Services.
