Experts in the field talk about what the proposed guidelines mean for procurement managers
Portt recently hosted a webinar on what the new government’s proposed guidelines mean for procurement leaders, which yielded many valuable insights.
The intelligent procurement, contract and supplier management platform has made a name for itself by ensuring that the strategic potential of procurement teams is improved. Designed to meet the needs of modern businesses, it can take procurement and supplier contracts and turn them into powerful strategic business assets for companies. It is built on best industry practices as it offers powerful features throughout the lifecycle from source to contract.
Quite simply, it ensures that companies can make important strategic decisions intelligently and make the best decision in the long run. The customer-centric approach is another hallmark of port, which has enabled her to meet her specific needs. In fact, it takes a lot of effort to know what they might be looking for and provide them with relevant information. That certainly applies to the webinar he hosted, which focused on the new government’s proposed guidelines for procurement executives.
Paul Hannan, Group Director, Chief Procurement Officer, NSW Department of Education, Lesley Skinner, Director, Commercial Law and Procurement, Department of Regional NSW, Scott Alden, Partner, HWL Ebsworth Lawyers, and Justin Sara, Director ArcBlue, were the experts who discussed the two main Labor policies that will have an impact. The 10-point Buy Australian Plan and the National Anti-Corruption Commission were the two policies that were the focus of Portt’s webinar.
New government guidelines mean there can be dramatic changes in public and private sector procurement. They often result in companies having to stick to and change plans at the last minute. Portt’s webinar was designed to ensure procurement leaders and organizations gain early insights on how to prepare for the changes these new policies will bring.
The distinguished speakers focused on each of these strategies, talking about the challenges they pose and how companies in the public and private sectors are addressing them. For example, in the 10-point Buy Australian plan, Paul Hannan said: “The government tends to bundle things together and scale them up to a size that’s more on the radar of international actors wanting to participate. Dividing procurement into sections means more administration. However, it could also mean that it allows us to target SMEs while offering better control over sourcing and greater resilience to this challenge.”
The National Anti-Corruption Commission stresses the need for better record keeping in procurement departments. “In South Australia and Western Australia, 50% of corruption reports are related to procurement,” Justin Sara highlighted the situation. The speakers then talked about the changes caused by the order and how companies can be prepared for them. In doing so, Portt once again set the stage for conversations and dialogues that provide crucial insights for procurement leaders.
