    The 1% rent cut has meant that driving cost savings is now firmly embedded in organisations across the sector. Extracting and embedding value across the supply chain is crucial if savings are going to be realised. This session will bring together organisations that have been recognised as exemplars in procurement. Our panel will share hints and tips to successful contract and supply chain management.

    Torus was formed in April 2015 when Golden Gates Housing Trust and Helena Partnerships came together to form a stronger business with 22,000 homes and 900 talented staff. As well as trying to establish a new business against a backdrop of unprecedented sector change, Torus faced the additional challenge of having to transform the groups’ IT offer, with no two systems the same. During the session Debbie will take you on a journey of transformation, the Torus way. Find out how an ambitious programme of this scale was tackled head on, how running costs were substantially reduced and how effective engagement took the whole of Team Torus on the journey too. Tony will describe his experience supporting Torus and share his considerable knowledge and insight into the wider marketplace.

    The need to build new homes seems to be on everyone’s agenda. However, with 80% of the UK’s housing stock still standing by 2050, there will be no revolution in housing if the focus is only on new build.

    When one looks back at the technological leaps that have been experienced over the last 15 years, it is hard to imagine how the places we call home will look and operate by then.

    Already a number of technological developments, especially in the realm of IT and communications have entered the housing market, and are changing the way people live. But this is just the beginning; the next big leap will be in the realm of energy.

    From in home storage of electricity and heat, to smart meters and new ever cheaper ways to generate energy, the home of the future will be powered in a very different way. However, It is particularly important that these developments are accessible to the most vulnerable in our society, especially those in social housing.

    The world is changing at an ever-increasing pace, but are the procurement methods we use still fit for purpose? The ubiquitous Framework we all know was established in a largely unchanged format 12 years ago, but a lot has changed since then. In fact the rate of change seems to be increasing on an almost daily rate. However for many organisations the Framework is the only tool in the proverbial toolbox. We live in the most dynamic environment we have ever faced, and we need more than a hammer to deal with the challenges presented to us in the most intelligent, and effective manner we can. In a tempestuous sea of change we need a flexible, agile, and intelligent procurement vehicle to navigate our way through, and although the trusted Framework is sturdy, perhaps it is not as agile and flexible as we need?
    The Framework was born in a time where we were all still watching video cassettes, social media was unheard of, the Labour Party was the dominant force in UK politics, a global financial crash was unthinkable, and no-one would even recognise the word ‘Brexit’. How quickly the world has changed, but yet how many of us still think of the Framework as the panacea to any Procurement problem? Are we living in the past?  Is there an alternative? Is it time to write a eulogy for our friend, the Framework?

    With an ageing population the environment within in which people live is becoming increasingly important to ensure that people vulnerable people in the community have ever chance to both stay in their own home instead of requiring expensive hospital care, or if a hospital stay has been required ensure they are able to return home at the earliest opportunity. This session explores how the use of technology can help to share information across the different services of organisations and deliver a service that is housing and health strategy that is both integrated and efficient.
