WELCOME

TO OUR

COLLABORATIVE

PROCUREMENT

JOURNEY...

The Faculty of Law, University of Malaya, is

pleased to announce that together with the

Bangor University's Institute for Competition

& Procurement Studies (ICPS), Bangor, Wales,

UK, we will be hosting the Procurement Week

2016: The ASEAN Laboratory, an International

Conference on Public Procurement Regulation

and Smart Cities Procurement on 16th and 17th

November 2016.

Procurement Week is a bi-annual international

conference that is founded on the philosophy -

“think globally, act locally”. The conference aims

to explore the many facets of Procurement,

such as Business Development and Growth,

Technology in Business, Procurement Law and

International Trade.

Twice yearly Bangor University's Institute for

Competition & Procurement Studies (ICPS)

bring together some of the world’s leading

procurement practitioners, lawyers, economists,

innovators, strategists and thinkers and

challenge them to address important emerging

national and international issues linked to a

range of topics. It is these experts who are at the

absolute heart of what we do. Their knowledge,

energy and imagination allows us to deliver an

exhilirating and compelling programme that

focuses on our audience's innovation objectives,

compliance concerns, and legal needs.

Procurement Week's experts work with you to

help you address challenging local, national

and global issues, whilst proposing innovative

and pragmatic solutions to help your business

improve its effiencies or deliver better services

to our citizens. At the same time it's our hard

work that ensures Procurement Week's

participants’ expectations are met and that they

are left completely satisfied, and stimulated.

Year-on-year Procurement Week continues

to grow in popularity. For example, in 2014, in

excess of 600+ guests, from over 20+ countries

attended the Week. In 2015, we welcomed

over 850+ attendees to the Week, this time 40+

countries were represented.

In 2015 Chris Hoyle, Crown Commercial Service

(UK) wrote about his experience at Procurement

Week, “I really enjoyed my time at Procurement

Week, and its growing success. The excellent

quality of the presentations. The global range of

attendees is a testimony to the efforts that you

and your colleagues have made to bring this

subject to the forefront of the stage”.

Professor Chris Yukins, George Washington

University (USA) was captivated by the event,

“I found the conference fascinating: the

presentation on the new negotiations to open

procurement of services under WTO was

remarkable, and a cutting edge development”.

We now invite you to spend a few minutes

browsing through the rest of this brochure to

identify the day or days that interest you most,

We look forward to seeing you at the Faculty

of Law, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur

on the 16th and 17th November 2016, in our

magnificent conference facilities.

WE ARE

RECRUITING...

Bangor University is a major international

research centre in relation to the operation of

national and European law and policies on public

procurement law and strategy. Building on this

extensive experience, the Law School offers the

1 year LLM option in Public Procurement Law &

Strategy (Full time programme)

The main educational aims of the programme

include:

To provide candidates with postgraduate level

knowledge and skills in the area of national (UK

and Irish), European and International (WTO,

World Bank and UNCITRAL) Public Procurement

Law and Strategy.

To build up specialist legal skills and knowledge

to equip candidates to operate in the interface

between legal principles that apply in the Public

Procurement environment and the strategic

objectives of interests to organisations in the

public and private sectors.

To provide a flexible programme enabling

candidates to develop national, european

and international perspectives on Public

Procurement law issues and practice, which will

open up a whole new area of opportunity for

graduates.

A strategic element of the programmes is the

presentation of learning from the perspectives

of both the public procurement function

and private sector supplier organisations, to

help advance understanding of the complex

issues organisations involved in public sector

tendering face, and to develop more creative

legally compliant public procurement solutions.

This is achieved through carefully designed

module options and collaborative teaching

involving the use of academic and expert

procurement law and strategy specialists.
