Innovation Procurement System webinar – your questions answered

The Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG) is inviting supply chain organisations to take part in our upcoming Q&A webinar, to share the next steps of the Innovation Procurement System (IPS) and to inform suppliers on how to join it.

A subsequent webinar event and Q&A session will take place in September for local authorities which will provide information procuring using the IPS.

The LCRIG IPS provides national reach for innovators and local councils to solve pressing challenges which require new approaches, materials, or technology. Further detail on the LCRIG IPS can be found by visiting the LCRIG website here.

LCRIG is inviting attendees to submit questions about the IPS in advance which will be answered during the free to attend online webinar. Audience members will be given the opportunity to put their questions directly to Martin Duffy, Jason Sprague and Kerry Winstanley, who developed the LCRIG IPS.

The following topic areas will be covered:

  • What are the LCRIG IPS scope and categories?
  • What is the IPS category roadmap and which categories should launch next?
  • How to join the IPS for the Road Surface Innovation Category?
  • How to engage Councils to use the IPS as a cost-effective and timely route to market?

The webinar will take place on 08 August at 11am and will be hosted on the LCRIG webinar platform.

You are invited to submit your questions to [email protected] by no later than 28 July.
