Philip Gurnett, EPS Director and Head of Sourcing Education


The Education Procurement Service was delighted to host over 70 suppliers at our Laboratory Supplier morning Briefing in the Castletroy Park Hotel, Limerick on 14th March, 2019.

The  event was an important part of the Education Procurement Service partner engagement process. It will contribute to the development of the  category strategy for laboratory, research equipment, consumables and gases.

We had a very open panel discussion and Q&A about Lab Operations and Procurement and the implementation of Category Management in the Public Sector Procurement model.

Opening the session was Philip Gurnett, EPS Director and Head of Sourcing Education.  The theme of his speech was “Intelligent strategies to meet new challenges”.
