Join us for this masterclass exploring how the public sector will procure IT projects under the Procurement Act 2023. We will explore the regulatory landscape and how the Procurement Act 2023 affects how procurement processes operate, as well as the impacts of the new regulation on how contracts are managed – of interest to both public sector customers and private sector suppliers bidding for the contracts. We will also look forward and identify future trends in government IT projects, identifying key policy decisions that may affect how the public sector consumes IT and where opportunity and risk lies for the private sector in supplying government. This is an essential event for lawyers working in, or advising clients on, public procurement of IT projects.

Why should you attend?
SCL Masterclasses provide an unrivalled opportunity to take a deeper dive into key tech law topics helping you to hone your understanding and develop your skills. With the paradigm-shifting Procurement Act 2023 entering into force in October this year and significant IT projects in the pipeline, debate and discussion among the expert panellists and knowledgeable audience will add depth and additional insight to this critical area and you will gain valuable practical takeaways to apply to your daily practice.

  • IT Law academics and students
  • Tech sector professionals & managers who need to understand how the public sector procures and manages IT projects
  • Anyone interested in public procurement
