Procurement and Contract Management for Councils

Tuesday, 01 June 2021 | 11:00 AM - 01:00 PM AEST | Online

Achieving strategic objectives and outcomes through improved procurement and contract management practices

Councils are aiming to achieve more sustainable and outcome driven procurement processes, to drive cost savings, improve probity, deliver improved outcomes, and meet their broad range of council objectives. 

Continuously reviewing contracts and improving supplier management is crucial to ensure value for money. To achieve this, councils are assessing emerging procurement and contact management software, training and upskilling staff and working on collaborating with other councils.  

Join us at the complimentary ‘Procurement and Contract Management for Councils’ virtual event that will equip attendees with new ideas and strategies to improve procurement and contract management processes and strategies.
