Procurement - Supplier Selection, Evaluation and Contract Award

Procurement - Supplier Selection, Evaluation and Contract Award


It’s decision time. This course teaches you the skills and provides tools to put the principles of good public procurement into practice. Topics covered will ensure you can develop an evaluation strategy, use it to recommend the best option or review recommendations to accept a tender / quote.

Have an opportunity to get hands-on experience developing your own customised selection criteria to ensure your Local Government engages the most advantageous supplier.

Learn about different evaluation and scoring methodologies which are suited to different types of procurement activities, and how the weighting of criteria can impact the recommendation.

Build your awareness of different contract establishment processes, and the parameters within which negotiation can occur before entering into a contract.
