Event coverage

In 2015, the BPCC, UKTI and PROFITA (sole representative for CIPS in Poland) organised a series of meetings on public procurement as part of the BPCC’s Public Private Partnerships Policy Group that take place in different locations in Poland. The Kraków edition of the meetings was held on 19 November at the Voivodship Office of the Małopolska Region. The keynote speaker was Will Beattie, Head of International Development at the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS). The main aim of the conference was to discuss the most crucial global standards and professionalisation of procurement and also to exchange experience between specialists operating in both sectors.
