News: Rotherham procurement event


Businesses in the care and support service sector are being invited to attend an event to find out more about the Council's vision for care services, future tenders, investment or grant funding opportunities by talking to key officers from the Council and its partners.

The "meet the buyer" event is being held at Rotherham United's New York Stadium on Tuesday February 2.

Cllr. David Roche, Advisory Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Health, said: "To achieve our future vision of care for Rotherham, we need to ensure we can commission services that deliver choice, quality and value for money.

"We are inviting providers and other interested parties – including individuals, social enterprises and the voluntary and community sector - to this event and hope they will be inspired by our vision and the opportunities to tender for contracts."

Prof. Graeme Betts, Interim Director of Adult Social Care Services at Rotherham Council ,added: "This is a great opportunity for providers to come along and find out more about how they can be a part of our future plans.

"The event will offer a wide range of advice and information from experienced officers from social care, health, procurement, Rotherham Investment Development Office (RiDO) and the voluntary sector.

"As well as informing providers of the Council's future direction, our aim is for the event to offer business support and practical advice on the tendering and procurement process."

The event will be held in two sessions: 10am to 1pm and 1.30pm to 4.30pm. Sessions will consist of an opening presentation followed by free time in which to browse information points and have discussions with a range of officers.

Companies wanting further information or to book a place, should contact the Council's Commissioning Team.
