Course Overview


This qualification allows for the attainment of competencies required for independent and self-directed work as a procurement and contract manager in the public sector. It is suitable for individuals who apply integrated technical and theoretical concepts in a broad range of contexts to undertake advanced skilled duties in a procurement and contracting environment.

Learning Outcomes


  • establish a governance framework for a complex procurement
  • develop a complex procurement plan
  • manage risk in a procurement
  • manage a complex procurement activity
  • evaluate a complex procurement
  • negotiate successful procurement outcomes
  • manage a complex contract
  • manage contractor performance.


ZOOM Virtual Classroom


Our virtual classroom consists of a facilitator teaching the class to students who are dialled in remotely to the class session. Presentation slides and other digital files can be presented during the training session using the Zoom platform and the student may either focus on these resources or the facilitator.

To enable connection, you will require the following set-up:

- Sufficient internet connection – Zoom is successful on a 4G network. Any network better than 4G will enhance the student’s experience;
- A PC with a web-camera, microphone and the capacity to run the Zoom application to allow the facilitator to better interact with students in the same manner as a traditional classroom; and
- Sufficient sized monitor or screen to support the number of students in the room.

This training is delivered through a mixture of presentation, group work, case studies and individual research in a partnering arrangement with accessUTS (RTO ID No 90811).

 
       


This training forms part of the NSW Public Sector Procurement Training
