With the government’s ambitions to have 33% of its procurement spend going to SMEs by 2022, it is essential that strategic suppliers to the public sector take action now to improve the indirect spend and allow communities to prosper with increased opportunities for local employers.
Perfect Circle is hosting an evening of networking that brings together SMEs and public sector bodies to discuss the value of working together. The event takes place on Wednesday, 12 June from 5.30pm at Aldgate Tower, 2 Leman Street, London, E1 8FA.
Hear our keynote speaker Rae Whittow-Williams from the GLA, followed by a panel discussion about procurement, capital programmes, and local spend, and talk to our teams about how your business can secure some of our £70 million spend.
As a strategic supplier to the public sector, Perfect Circle is working with local businesses to make greater contributions to the government’s target and achieving Local Industrial Strategies, as well as meeting ours client’s preferences for using local teams in the supply chain.
