LBTH Competition Board 
- Established in 2009
- "Officer training is currently available through the corporate training programme. The standard training consists of three modules (Essentials of Procurement & Contract Law; Letting Procurement Contracts; Contract Management), but the training will be adapted for specific requirements, such as large consultancy contracts.
All high value contracts (over £250K) require the approval of Competition Board, and a new project appraisal process of “tollgates” has been introduced to facilitate this. Tollgates ask targeted questions about the client’s approach to the contract, and make recommendations for improvement. They also provide the opportunity for Procurement to identify gaps, provide support and promote good practice in contracting.
Presentations for Directorate officers to be arranged Summer / Autumn 2008. These will focus on the emerging Corporate Procurement Strategy, Procurement Code of Practice, and the category management approach."
