Best Value Procurement can guarantee construction is delivered for the public sector on time, on budget and whilst meeting Welsh Government targets.

It requires commitment, demands change, client skills and leadership.

Value Wales, Welsh Local Government Association’s Collaborative Works Group and C E Wales are working together with the construction industry in Wales to review and change the basics of construction procurement.

This conference looks at the progress made since the establishment of the Value Wales Steering Group by the Minister for Finance, Jane Hutt AM and gives delegates the opportunity to contribute to the development of a procurement strategy for construction in Wales.

Who should attend?  This conference will be of interest to anyone involved in procuring or delivering construction services within the public sector in Wales.
