Procurement and Contract Management

What's happening?

ProcurePoint added some new resources for buying professionals in June 2019. These include a Services Process Map, Services Self-Help Tool, Supplier Engagement Compliance Checklist, and a recorded webinar on the Standard Commercial Framework for the PMS Scheme. Click here to access the resources.

The TfNSW L&D team is undertaking an Equip Procurement Learning Needs Analysis to look at how procurement related training can be better delivered to the cluster. The LNA should be available in April 2019. For more information, contact Sharat Pujary (Sharat.Pujary@transport.nsw.gov.au).

Have you heard about the NSW Procurement Capability Compass? It's an online assessment that will be available for NSW Government procurement professionals to asses their capability against the NSW Public Sector Capability Framework. Talk to your Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) to find out more.

NSW Government Departments must complete an annual self-reporting for the Accreditation program for Goods and Services Procurement by 31 August each year. Click here for more information.

The TfNSW Purchasing Card (PCard) Policy and Procedure were updated in January 2019 to align with the NSW Treasury's PCard Policy. Click here for more information.
