Covid-19 Procurement Toolkit


The global pandemic has undoubtedly revealed supply chain vulnerabilities, variable contracting practices, and the importance of strong close working relationships with key suppliers. Organisations are also looking to offset potentially dramatic reductions in budgets and sales revenue through rapid identification and realisation of financial opportunities. Therefore, having practical, proven and immediately useable tools and techniques to help deal with such procurement challenges can only be a benefit to organisations.

 

CIPS has created a Procurement Toolkit, deliverable via a virtual learning platform that is targeted at helping to up-skill those within organisations who are tasked with addressing those types of challenges described above. Over three (3) workshops, adaptable process tools and templates, accompanying short-form user guides, and delegate examples will be used by CIPS experienced tutors to facilitate discussions, and ensure delegates leave better equipped and more confident.

 

CIPS recognises that one of the key’s to developing sustainable improvements in people capability is establishing the right balance between education, practical application of taught skills and, timely feedback on progress made and opportunities for further improvement. Both the format for these workshops, and the accompanying materials for use back in the organisation have been collectively developed with that proven model in mind.
