Procurement Community of Practice

The Procurement Community of Practice (CoP) focuses on building procurement awareness, capability, and capacity in the Victorian public purpose sector.

Procurement functions across the public purpose sector have had to quickly adapt and shift dramatically in 2020. IPAA Victoria identified that there is a need and procurement is now more important than ever.

IPAA Victoria’s Procurement CoP focuses on building procurement awareness, capability and capacity in the Victorian public purpose sector.

We aim to do this by bringing together public purpose sector professionals (from all levels and across different specialisations) who are passionate about procurement; and interested in sharing better practice ideas and experiences with likeminded individuals in a collaborative and inclusive environment.

By joining our community, you will gain access to expert knowledge and local networking opportunities that allow you to connect, learn and share your experiences while exploring the very latest ideas and innovations related to procurement.
