Webinar video: Procuring Waste Management Services

At this webinar recording we have a stellar panel discussing the three overarching themes on the procurement of waste management services and infrastructure for local authorities.

Finance: How do you balance price vs quality? How can you deliver both the procurement and the service/infrastructure with limited budgets? What will austerity mean for future service provision?

Flexibility: How can you address change in law as part of the procurement? How can options appraisals support in decision making? What role do Local Authority trading companies have to play? 

Future gazing: How will Brexit affect procurement? What needs to be considered from the Circular Economy Package? What will the upcoming Resources and Waste Strategy and Budget mean for Local Authority services and infrastructure?
