A European quality framework as a safeguard for
procurement of social services


6 December 2012


European Economic and Social Committee
Rue Belliard 99, 1000 Brussels





On 6 December 2012 the European Platform for Rehabilitation (EPR) organised a Public Affairs Event in the premises of the European Economic and Social Committee in Brussels. Directors and managers from EPR member organisations throughout Europe were sat at the table with member networks of ‘Social Services Europe’ as well as a wide range of user organisations, funders and policy-makers to discuss the role of quality in the draft Directive on Public Procurement (COM) 2011/896.

The animate discussion, facilitated by Jan Spooren - EPR Secretary General and by Angela Kerins - EPR President, aimed to review the potential relationship between quality and procurement in the light of major EU initiative.


The event was followed by a complimentary cocktail giving to participants the opportunity to interact with each other and to exchange opinions and personal considerations.
