Start Date 4 July 2018
Start time 8:00 am

We invite you to join us and our panel of experts to discuss this question and its implications for public services in Wales over breakfast.

Chaired by Professor Steve Martin, Director of the Wales Centre for Public Policy, out panel includes:

  • Milica Kitson OBE, CEO, Constructing Excellence Wales
  • Matthew Mortlock, Director of Performance Audit, Wales Audit Office, and lead on the WAO’s recent review of public procurement in Wales
  • Cllr. Phil Murphy, Cabinet Member for Resources, Monmouthshire County Council, and former Chair of the Wales Purchasing Consortium
  • John Tizard, Independent Strategic Advisor and expert on public service markets

While Wales is considerably less exposed to large scale private provision of public services compared to England, the Carillion case affords a moment for all those concerned with commissioning and delivering public services in Wales to reflect on procurement and outsourcing as innately political and strategic decisions.
