Northern Ireland Procurement Conference 2022


New era for public procurement

Procurement is an important element of the Northern Ireland economy. Central and local government spends approximately £3 billion per year on procurement, of which £2.7 billion is spent by government departments and their arm’s length bodies. Many private sector organisations also spend significant amounts in the local economy. This conference will examine both the challenges and opportunities in the future outlook for procurement in Northern Ireland.

In July 2021, Finance Minister Conor Murphy announced a substantial change in public procurement policy that puts an emphasis on social value. From June 2022, social value must account for at least 10 per cent of the total award criteria for government tenders. Subject to approval by the Executive, this will increase to 20 per cent from June 2023. This new policy will put social value at the heart of public procurement, creating a benefit beyond the purchase of goods and services including delivering environmental benefits and job creation in deprived areas.

Alongside the current Covid-19 pandemic and the impact of Brexit, this change in policy presents a new challenge to the procurement landscape which practitioners must ensure they keep up to date with and its implication for their organisation.

agendaNi magazine’s annual procurement conference will examine what effective public procurement means for organisations in Northern Ireland. The conference will have a genuine, in-depth understanding of the key issues via a high-level panel of local and visiting speakers.
