Summary Procurement is an essential council function and an area of both risk and opportunity – be it from low level purchasing, to strategic, high value, high risk complex procurement. LGA Procurement offers a suite of training modules, developed and targeted specifically to the local government audience.

LGA Procurement works within the South Australian Local Government sector, as a partner to councils, to provide knowledge and networking opportunities to procurement staff.

A key component of this work is the Professional Development LGA Procurement provides, which incorporate this suite of training modules, developed and targeted specifically to the local government audience.

Procurement is an essential council function and an area of both risk and opportunity – be it from low level purchasing, to strategic, high value, high risk complex procurement.

No matter where you sit in the procurement cycle, these modules will enhance your knowledge and understanding of procurement and the value it provides to councils delivering their strategic outcomes.

Testimonial 

"It was definitely a worthwhile course, only wish I’d done it sooner!  Personally I think it should be a mandatory course for all those working in local government when they start, especially if they have no previous council experience like myself."   
Lynette Croft - District Council of Ceduna
