About this event

The events will seek to demonstrate a direct correlation between strategy and the procurement process and the resulting consequences further down the line, in terms of the outcome of the procurement, and the unintended liabilities that may be left behind. There will be an emphasis on exploring the structure of the insurance market, and how a lack of transparency can prevent public bodies getting the best insurance arrangements available; along with advice on how to bring transparency to the process and in doing so, generate more competition.

A summary of updated legal changes which affect the procurement of insurance specifically will also be provided, to ensure you are well informed with a modern and compliant insurance provision.

Who should attend?

This workshop is particularly aimed at risk and insurance managers and practitioners in public sector organisations (local authorities, NHS Trusts, higher education, schools, academies and housing associations). It will also support procurement, finance, audit and legal staff who support insurance practitioners, as well as those that are involved in the strategic decision of how to approach risk within the organisation.

How will I benefit?

By attending the workshop, delegates will:

  • gain a practical understanding of the Insurance Act and how to implement the changes into your procurement process
  • understand the impact of the Ogden Rate changes on your claims and policies
  • discuss how to obtain greater transparency in the process and generate more competition for your organisation
  • explore the options provided by introducing more innovation into your insurance programme
  • learn the lessons of the cycle of errors that can lead to significant consequences through a review of current high-profile cases
  • gain awareness of the insurance risks associated with contracting out.
