An Foras Pátrúnachta / News / Event – Sourcing for schools 17/12/15

Promoting the procurement reform agenda in the schools sector is one of central roles of the SPAC, and this seminar is an opportunity for SPAC members and the relevant personnel from your schools to meet and interact with the Office of Government Procurement – those who place contracts and frameworks on behalf of schools. It is imperative that the voice of the school is heard by those who conduct important business on behalf of the schools, and this seminar affords a valuable opportunity for communication points to be formed. Registration for the event is via email to denise.omalley@ul.ie Places are limited so I would encourage interested parties to register asap please, in order to secure a place.
