IMPROVING GOVERNMENT PROCUREMENT OPERATIONS TO MAXIMISE VALUE FOR MONEY OUTCOMES

Procurement managers from right across Australia’s public sector are continually striving to ensure they deliver the best value for money for tax payers and contribute to the strategic goals of their organisations. The Government expectations for expenditure and management of public funds and achieving value for money outcomes lends to public sector procurement being open to public scrutiny and accountability in ways that may be experienced in the private sector. Procurement activities of the public sector are governed by a set of general principles and legislative requirements that creates a situation which is increasingly difficult to manage, whilst expectations continue to rise.

With budgets tight at a federal, state and local level, strategic procurement has never been more important and this Summit will bring together some of the most exciting and innovative case studies – locally and internationally – with keynote presentations from leading public sector CPO’s and interactive panel discussions to address the most significant challenges procurement managers face today.
