Procurement Fundamentals

Engineering context

Engineers, particularly those involved in running projects, need to have sound skills when purchasing goods and services. With the procurement of services comes the need to write tender briefs, create (and re-negotiate) contracts, evaluate vendor performance and mitigate risks.

This webinar provides a practical introduction to procurement from the viewpoint of both the buyer and the seller. A procurement specialist will delve into the key issues and risks you need to be aware of in the procurement and sales process.

At the end of the webinar you will know how the procurement and sales functions of an organisation operates and who to contact if these functions are not operating as they should.

Learning outcomes

  • Identify the purpose and effect of a contract
  • Describe the contracting lifecycle
  • List the typical steps in the procurement process
  • Outline the key ISO 31000 Risk Management Standard steps
