Procurement in Authority Schools and Academies (December 2015)
Better procurement choices will be seen as key to making the efficiencies savings of over £1bn a year called for in the 25 November Spending Review. This year’s research notes changes in key areas including methods of pursuing value for money, autonomy and budget-setting practices. BESA members can obtain full details of these emerging trends by clicking here.
Seminars are free to BESA members. Covering various industry topics, including the popular new to education seminar, our programme can be viewed via the calendar.
