About Overview of Procurement Essentials

Public procurement is governed by a comprehensive regulatory and legal regime. It is essential that officials in the public sector dealing with procurement are aware of and know how to stay clear of legal and procedural pitfalls and demonstrate an understanding of how the procurement operation should function from the CPP through to the end of the procurement cycle.
Mistakes can be extremely costly for the public body concerned. Challenging compliance issues must be overcome in a manner that ultimately delivers best value for the public purse. ‘Overview of Procurement Essentials – Online Course’ provides a practical overview of public procurement principles, policies and procedures within the wider context of procurement best practice.

This course will demonstrate how to effectively manage and adopt best practice processes to ensure compliance while also delivering optimal value, service, quality, innovation and reduced risk for your organisation.

At the end of the seminar, participants will have a good understanding of how the Public Spending Code should be applied in their workplace.
