Overview

Introduction to Procurement - Two days 

CPDA two-day overview of the essentials of procurement from end-to-end, exploring the various ways each process can add value.

 

Upon completion of this course, delegates will be equipped with:

  • An understanding of the procurement process from end-to-end, with a particular focus on how value is added with each component. Within this, delegates will also understand how the role of procurement is far more intensive than straightforward transactional purchasing.
  • A look at appropriate demeanour and approach when going out to tender and dealing with suppliers, and how to mitigate potential risks posed by supplier behaviour.
  • The ability to identify and separate the tools used to engage the market, such as Requests for Information and/or Proposals, and ultimately the usage of those systems.
  • An understanding of how expertise in the procurement field is ultimately essential, particularly around how that expertise is applied.
  • The ability to demonstrate and define value by implementing a variety of evaluation tools and theories.
