What CCGs need to learn from the Olympic security fiasco


Interesting. However, my experience in applying for NHS & Social Care training tenders is that the procurers themselves often do not have the experience nor training either to construct the tender process or understand what information the provider needs in order to come up with a competitive tender (eg for training, how many people to be trained, how many days' training are expected - all of which affect the price). So this begs the question: who in the CCG will be responsible for setting the tender, do they understand how to do it properly and do they also understand how conflicts of interest work? Perhaps someone can tell me.
