NSW Procurement Training

NSW Procurement Training
The importance of procurement knowledge and training is often misunderstood by departments and their staff. From administrative personnel who place purchase orders, to managers who control budgets, to senior procurement managers who control agency procurement functions, procurement training offers a risk management approach to individuals and their departments.

This suite of procurement training is tailored to NSW Government legislation and practise, and spans understanding public sector procurement to strategic procurement competencies.
