About the Programme

To date, PAI’s Public Procurement programmes have been very well received with delegates from a wide and varied range of departments and organisations. We have found that those attending our seminars are delegates with higher responsibilities who already have a good level of knowledge of Public Procurement but would like to refresh their knowledge and gain insight to any updates, progressions or changes to procurement legislation.


There has been significant progress made within government to professionalise the role of the procurement officer and to highlight the key part this profession plays in driving progress beyond the traditional pillars (value, quality, and transparency) and adopting new pillars such as strategic and green procurement.


In light of these advancements, PAI have developed a comprehensive update training programme in support of procurement professionals operating with higher responsibilities and with an existing working knowledge of public procurement.
