BUSINESSES from Tenbury have had a chance to meet buyers from Worcestershire County Council and public sector organisations.

Some of the region’s public sector buyers were invited to breakfast as FinditinWorcestershire offered an insight behind a variety of contracting opportunities available across the county.

The ‘Public Sector Procurement Special’ event took place at Sixways Stadium and gave insight into the tender procedures used for the purchase of supplies and services by local procurement departments.

Keynote speaker, Andrew Spice, Director of Commercial and Commissioning at Worcestershire County Council, gave a background to the County Council and what is involved in its buying process and supplier engagement practices.

Mr Spice illustrated how the buying process will change and any potential suppliers tendering for council contracts will need to consider various areas of social value as part of a tender.

The event provided the opportunity for business from Tenbury to meet with potential customers from other parts of the county.

It was one of a series of events in which business and buyers meet.
