Steve Butcher, HEFCE's head of procurement, will be speaking at this policy and practice briefing.

The Government has announced that shared services will receive an exemption from VAT, removing what the Diamond Review identified as a significant barrier to collaboration between universities. In order for the higher education sector to take advantage of this change and establish high-quality shared services, institutions will need to simplify, streamline and improve their internal processes. With resources stretched, how can HEIs achieve this aim? 

Who should attend

Delegates will be drawn from a wide range of stakeholders, including: universities, colleges, charities, professional bodies, employers and relevant central Government departments and agencies.

The event is being organised by Westminster Briefing. Further details and how to register.
