Procurement and procurement policies have been a hot topic for local governments for some time. There are significant risks and responsibility associated with everyday procurement activities. With a national spend of over $34 billion, and a state spend over $2.5 billion, local government is big business in Australia and WA. There have been inquiries and instances of noncompliance with procurement rules, which have resulted in negative press coverage, and ratepayers holding local government in lower esteem. John Filippone, Director at Procurement Plus, will run through the essentials of procurement in local government, drawing upon his years of experience at State Government, WALGA and Procurement Plus. You will be surprised what you don't know!
