REC raises procurement concerns with Minister of State for Business and Enterprise
 
This weeks annual conference of the Trade Association Forum (TAF) was an opportunity for taking forward key industry concerns with political figures and business leaders. The REC was able to raise specific issues linked to public procurement with the Minister of State for Business and Enterprise, Mark Prisk.
 
In his keynote speech to the conference, the Minister underlined the Governments commitment to cutting red tape, supporting small businesses and involving employers in new Local Enterprise Partnerships. The open discussion part of the session included a specific focus on the recent experiences of recruiters working with the public sector.
 
Commenting on the discsussions, Tom Hadley, the RECs Director of Policy and Professional Services said:
 
We will continue to shine the spotlight on where there is a disconnect between Government rhetoric and what is happening on the ground. Public procurement is a prime example of this and is the number one threat for many recruiters. The Minister asked for concrete examples of where recent developments have impacted on suppliers and where things are getting harder rather than easier for smaller businesses in our sector. We will be following this up with the Minister as well as continuing to fight our corner with procurement departments.
