Procurement Advice and Support Service

Procurement Training and Consultancy for the Public Sector

In light of the Coronavirus crisis, procurement is facing very challenging times. To help buyers across the UK public sector, PASS held a webinar on Thursday 26 March which looked at how buyers can use Regulation 32 to help with procurement requirements thrust upon their organisation through urgency.

The webinar also considered various issues, including when buyers can by-pass the normal procurement route for urgent requirements; seeking to engage faster with suppliers; ensuring they remain compliant; and extending their current contracts where appropriate.
