PROACTIS, a global Spend Control and eProcurement solution provider, today announced it is to hold a series of roundtable discussions for Procurement in the Charity/Not-for-Profit (NfP) sector. Its objectives are to promote development of best practice in Procurement and the use of technology in order to help organisations make their funding go further.
The first closed-door roundtable is taking place on Thursday 27 June, 09.30-11.30am at The Law Society, London. It will represent senior procurement executives from the sector and will be chaired by David Coyte-Smith, Buying Team Manager from the RSPCA. Topics to be discussed include:
- What does Spend Control mean to Charity/NfP organisations today - is it just about cost cutting and sourcing for best value, or more?
- What is the role of Procurement in facilitating better performance and what kind of investments need to be made by leadership?
- What are the risks involved in not facing emerging challenges in the sector?
The outcome of the discussion aims to be a five-point agenda for Charity/NfP organisations to promote and embrace procurement for growth. To express interest email firstname.lastname@example.org

This event represents the interests of the sector and aims to compliment other Special Interest Groups that promote Purchasing and Supply Chain Management in the sector."
