Veronica Daly - Director of Commercial and Procurement Services, Houses of Parliament
I lead the procurement and commercial function for both the House of Commons and House of Lords. I was responsible for creating this new shared service and transforming the previous functions.
I am the Head of Profession for Contract Management and Procurement in Parliament. I lead a category team which includes Construction, ICT and Governance.
Parliament was awarded the 'Buy Social' certification by SEUK in 2015 in recognition of our commitment to social enterprises. We have developed a Sustainable purchasing policy which facilitates the award of contracts to Social Enterprises both directly and indirectly through the supply chain.
I am a Trustee for the Social Enterprise 'Bounce Back' which trains helps offenders and ex-offenders in construction skills and helps change lives through employment. I am also an adviser to the Social Enterprise 'Growth Rings' which teaches individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds skills in wood craft.
