Connected Places Catapult is engaged with experts and representative bodies from across the public procurement ecosystem to challenge the myths surrounding public procurement, share pioneering practice, set out new pathways and outline best practice for the procurement of new and innovative solutions by the public sector.

Connected Places Catapult’s mission is to help British businesses address the Grand Challenges of today in order to create Connected Places, fit for the future. Places are unique, but the challenges they face are not. Local authorities and their strategic partners face a myriad of local, national and global challenges – from the all too familiar issue of managing rising demand for services in the context of prolonged austerity, up to and including tackling the increasingly pressing climate emergency.
To help local place leaders rise to this challenge, they need to be able to use the full potential of public procurement by working with you to challenge procurement so that we can utilise the full potential of public procurement.
