LGA Procurement works within the South Australian Local Government sector, as a partner to councils, to provide knowledge and networking opportunities to procurement staff. A key component of this work is the Professional Development LGA Procurement provides, which incorporate this suite of training modules, developed and targeted specifically to the local government audience.
Procurement is an essential council function and an area of both risk and opportunity – be it from low level purchasing, to strategic, high value, high risk complex procurement. No matter where you sit in the procurement cycle, these modules will enhance your knowledge and understanding of procurement and the value it provides to councils delivering their strategic outcomes.
Tailored specially for SA Local Government, we have just successfully concluded our courses for 2018 – with the addition of two very successful Webinar trials.If you are interested in gaining a better understanding of procurement in local government, the calendar for 2019 is set.
We are again running all five courses to fit in with your 2018-2019 budgets; and again will conduct the full series in the second half of the year, so you can plan your professional development time.
The following modules are available to book now!
The training modules are delivered at LG House, Frome Street Adelaide – where you have the opportunity to learn and network with other like-minded procurement personnel. Courses are charged per person.
LGA Procurement is also able to deliver training into your council, or region as a joint council initiative – contact LGA Procurement for a tailored quote.
