Department for Education briefs DWF
In September, Perry Hill, DWF partner from our London office attended a round table briefing with Carl Fagan and Mark Wallbank from the Department for Education (DfE).
The meeting was aimed to assist the DfE to engage in a better dialogue with suppliers of services from the private sector. The DfE acknowledged that they had not always had as much opportunity as they would like to engage with private sector suppliers to the education sector.
The emphasis of the session was on schools demonstrating efficiency through improved procurement processes, and by schools sharing knowledge through making use of school clusters and data sharing.
