This training workshop considers the merits and downsides of competitive procurement, and when the “Invitation to Tender” may not be the best approach. Different jurisdictions follow different methods of public procurement, with some placing greater emphasis on negotiation as part of the process. We will look at alternative ways of carrying out procurement activity that are open to scrutiny and survive the challenges of the disappointed bidder.
This training workshop focuses on two important elements of procurement: the documentation of the organization’s needs into a “Scope of Work” or “Statement of Requirement”; and the ways to engage with the supply market, in order to find a supplier who is capable of meeting your requirements effectively and efficiently.
