Guidelines for Engaging Training Providers to Deliver Procurement Training

Intended Audience
It is expected that the audience for these guidelines would consist of two main groups:
  • Procurement specialists who have been tasked with responding to a perceived or actual need to provide procurement training programs for a range of audiences; and
  • Learning and development specialists who have undertaken some form of skills audit or training needs analysis and have identified an actual need to provide procurement training programs for a range of audiences.

The Guide recognises that progression through levels of procurement professionalism is associated with increasing levels of procurement complexity, risk, managerial responsibility and leadership. Inspiring individuals to a professional career path in government procurement will be planned through three major pathways – graduate recruitment; lateral recruitment via alternate professions in both the private and public sectors; and development of mainstream procurement practitioners.
