Another successful meet the buyer event
Posted on: 3 December 2015
On Monday 16 November, Mid Devon’s Procurement team joined public sector buyers from across Devon in Torquay to meet with potential and existing suppliers in the region. This gave them an exclusive opportunity to talk to those who make purchasing decisions and explain why we procure in the way that we do.
Feedback received was positive, with both supplier and buyer organisations gaining information and contacts which will broaden the links between public sector buyers and Devon based businesses.
Although the Council is somewhat restricted in being able to give preferential treatment to locally based suppliers, we were able provide an insight to how to compete with others for this work. This is an excellent way for us to invest in the local economy by supporting the local businesses within our communities.Posted in: Business & Economy | My Council
