Police procurement - challenges and opportunities

The tech supplier community to the public sector are invited to attend this event looking at the challenges and opportunities within police procurement. This session will provide suppliers with a deeper understanding of the police market, of the police procurement landscape, and will give some practical tips on how to engage with the sector more effectively to win contracts.

Our panel of expert speakers will explore the nature of policing as a tech market, will share advice on how to navigate the procurement landscape, and deliver key messages that suppliers (and aspiring suppliers) should know. Speakers include Paul Kennedy (Blue Light Strategic Adviser) and Chris Farthing (MD) from Advice Cloud, Ben Nelson (Head of Commercial) from the Police ICT Company, Jules Donald (CIO, Essex Police) and Clare Elford(MD) from Clue Computing.

This event is a must for current suppliers to policing looking to grow their presence, and for companies trying to break into the policing market for the first time. Book your place now!
