Walker Morris LLP will be speaking and exhibiting at the LGG Weekend School 2014 at the University of York. We are looking forward to catching up with our existing clients and contacts and meeting new ones.  Please come and visit us at Stand 15.

Walker Morris are leading Breakout Session 1e Practical Tips for Managing Your Contracts on Friday 4 April, 10.15-11.00a.m.

To book tickets to the event please visit the LGG training website and to attend our Breakout Session please request this when booking.

This session will focus on the key practical challenges local authorities will face managing contracts effectively in a changing environment. This will include an assessment of the commercial, procurement, governance and value for money implications of effective contract management and the implications of not doing so.

The session will commence with a brief reminder of the legal tools available to get the most out of contracts – including changes to contracts, performance management, and termination. Practical examples will be given.

Walker Morris and the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE) have developed an innovative partnership entitled APSE Energy to help APSE support its members in driving forward initiatives related to the renewable and energy agenda. APSE’s members will be able to access the partnership in a number of ways; from participating in collaborative working or individually supported initiatives through to access to advice at preferential rates, articles, research and a planned joint training and consultancy programme. The partnership also aims to develop benchmarking for energy efficiency and renewable energy in the sector. Read more about our partnership with APSE here.
