Event Details

We are happy to announce that on Thursday 16th June, Innopsis will be holding a joint event with Crown Commercial Service to present an update on the NS3 pre-market engagement.



On the 2nd November 2021 we held the initial kick-off for the NS3 pre-market engagement for suppliers.  This was followed by a number of focused events and topical workshops designed to offer suppliers an opportunity to feedback on lessons learned from NS2 and to inform CCS considerations on the upcoming NS3 agreement by identifying areas for potential improvement.

Our next Industry event will be on 16th June 2022 and will present an overview of the proposals put forward by the Industry workshops, highlight quick-wins, and provide an update on the forthcoming tender.
