Public Sector Procurement: Driving value for money

IPAA Victoria’s Public Sector Procurement: Driving value for money course will increase your confidence to not only comply with procurement policies, but also to play your part in ensuring that value for money is achieved in the procurement of goods and services by the public sector.

Now is the time to refresh and update your knowledge of best practice procurement across Victorian Government agencies.

Course overview

You will gain a comprehensive knowledge of Public Sector Procurement and how to drive value for money through:

  • examining the latest policies and legislation related to public sector procurement
  • learning best-practice processes from planning a tender, to evaluating providers, selecting value for money and managing risk
  • gaining appropriate tools, techniques and methods for planning, executing and evaluating a procurement contract.

Course outcomes

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • understand the key issues relating to public sector procurement
  • drive real value for government through effective planning and execution of procurement contracts
  • immediately implement your learnings into your role.

Course audience

The ideal course participant is a:

  • professional whose role incorporates procurement, contract or project management
  • VPS member of staff involved with procurement management (VPS 3-6)
  • employee responsible for procuring or supporting goods or services contracts within the public sector,
  • professional involved in procurement activities.

A good balance of refreshing existing knowledge and breaking into new niche areas helped me to increase my overall knowledge and appreciation of the area.
