Procurement Training & Development

PROCUREMENT TRAINING

As the Cayman public sector is responsible for acquiring millions of dollars every year in goods, services, and works, it is critical there be a corps of public servants trained in effective procurement practices. A recent study by the Volcker Alliance titled “ Doing the People’s Business ” identified 12 key competencies for those responsible for public procurement:

Group 1: PROCESS AND POLICY COMPREHENSION
Group 2: FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS AND ANALYTICAL SKILLS
Group 3: STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT

PROCUREMENT DEVELOPMENT

Organizations, just like people, mature and change over time and the same is true for their overall approach to procurement. The journey from an Ad Hoc Model to a Professional Model takes time, training and resources.

The Central Procurement Office is a member and proudly endorses the NIGP: The Institute for Public Procurement, the main public procurement body representing over 3000 public agencies and 15,000 members around the world. The NIGP can provide resources and training to public organizations and people wanting to follow the path to a Professional Model.
