WASHINGTON, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Public Spend Forum today announces the launch of Public Spend Forum Europe (previously Public Spend Matters Europe), to add European strength and capability to help make its vision for a global, connected, transparent public sector market a reality.
As the European branch of Public Spend Forum, PSF Europe will operate out of London to serve European public sector organizations as well as suppliers serving the market. With the goal of building a global community and knowledge network, PSF Europe will provide critical news, insights into procurement and public sector best practices, and practical tools that can be used to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of government spending.
Raj Sharma, Chairman and Co-Founder of PSF said, "This is a perfect extension of our community for Public Spend Forum, as we believe a global network can be a significant source of learning and collaboration through which governments across the world can improve procurement and public spending."
Public Spend Forum Europe will also provide value to suppliers by providing insights into the European market and ways to navigate the complex government environment resident within each country.
Peter Smith, a former UK government executive and Director of PSF Europe, stated "We are excited to bring buyers and suppliers within Europe and across the world together to improve the way they work in providing better services to their citizens and constituencies."
Public Spend Forum Europe, previously Public Spend Matters Europe, will help bring about much-needed innovation and change in Europe's public sector market and government spending with its launch on Thurs., June 9.
