Webinar: Key issues for charities in public service delivery: procurement and contracts

April 22 @ 1:30 pm 3:00 pm

Charities delivering public services are facing extremely serious challenges due to covid-19. From drastic changes in the volume and nature of demand, to having to adapt or even suspend their services, many have had to quickly adapt. The government’s recent Procurement Policy Notes encouraged all contracting authorities to support suppliers – but what does the guidance mean in practice? And what steps should suppliers take to manage their contractual obligations?

In this webinar, Augustus Della-Porta and Paul Seath from Bates Wells, together with Rebecca Young from NCVO, will discuss:

  • Understanding the new procurement guidance (PPN 01 20 and 02 20)
  • Managing relationships with prime providers and subcontracted organisations
  • Dealing with contractual issues
  • Whether it is possible for an authority to move to a grant payment instead of contract
  • When furloughing can and can’t be used
