Training overview

Whether you’re an experienced procurement professional trying to get across some new conditions or just starting out—or you’re the person in charge of it all!—we have something for you.

Skills2Procure is our whole-of-government training and development initiative aimed at people in all parts of the procurement process, such as:

  • procurement staff
  • contract management staff
  • staff who help with contract management and procurement
  • agency executives.

What’s on offer?

We talked to agencies and asked them what they needed. They told us they needed flexible training, specific to people’s roles and place in the procurement process, and access to procurement tools.

So we built Skills2Procure which has 2 major training and development programs. Talk to your manager about complementing these programs with mentoring and on-the-job training opportunities.
