Procurement - Supplier Selection, Evaluation and Contract Award

Procurement - Supplier Selection, Evaluation and Contract Award


This intermediate course describes the skills and provides tools to put the principles of good public procurement into practice.  It includes evaluating offers, obtaining approvals, developing and formalising contract arrangements and debriefing the market and other stakeholders.

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.

You will have an opportunity to get hands-on experience developing your own customised selection criteria to ensure your Local Government engages the most advantageous supplier.  You will 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.  And you can build your awareness of different contract establishment processes, and the parameters within which negotiation can occur before entering into a contract.

The skills and knowledge described in this unit must be applied within the legislative, regulatory and policy environment in which they are carried out.

Organisational policies and procedures must be consulted and adhered.
