Procurement Training for the Public Sector
2
Throughout the public sector, there is a lot of
pressure on departments and individuals to save
money. Although the mandate to save money is
clear, it needs to be accomplished without
degrading the quality of goods or services that
are delivered. This combination creates a
procurement challenge that is quite significant.
As a result of that challenge, there is a very
real need for PURCHASING MANAGERS who have the
right mix of experience and skills. Since this
type of procurement requires more than just
cutting costs, staffers need to be problem
solvers who can bring valuable ideas and
SOLUTIONS to the table. Because thats not
something that happens overnight, we want to
provide a few suggestions for ways that training
can help individuals in or entering this line of
work develop the skills they need to succeed
3
Training Should Focus on Both Specific and Broad
Topics
In order for someone to thrive in a procurement
role, they need to be able to tackle very
specific tasks. But in addition to that
requirement, procurement professionals also need
the ability to look at certain issues in the
context of a bigger picture. Given that the job
requires a varied approach to work, its
something that procurement training should
reflect.
4
Sales and Marketing Should Have Overlaps with
Procurement
Far too many organizations put procurement and
sales marketing in completely different silos.
While it does make sense for these departments to
function independently, its important to
acknowledge that there should be some overlap and
synergy. Any organization that wants to maximize
the effectiveness of both areas should make it a
priority to get the right supporting training
programs in place.
5
Learning is An Ongoing Process
While lots of upfront education and training is
obviously important for people who are thinking
about getting into procurement, its important to
remember that learning isnt something with an
expiration date. The best procurement
professionals are those who have a commitment to
lifelong learning. Because that approach can have
lots of positive effects, its something that
public sector procurement training should be set
up to support.
6
Confidence to Take Advantage of the Latest
Technology
The modern world moves very fast. Since thats a
simple fact, procurement professionals need to be
able to take advantage of tools that can make
their work as efficient as possible. Of all the
available tools in that category, PURCHASING
