These meetings provide an opportunity for members to raise important issues with these organisations, gain a better understanding of future work programmes and also build a better understanding of each client’s expectations of the contractors that they work with.

Recent liaison meetings have seen members have face-to-face discussions with Chief Executives, Procurement and Commercial Directors as well as a range of technical staff from organisations including:

  • North East Combined Authority
  • Tees Valley Combined Authority
