Performance Through Procurement

Procurement for Beginners

For people new to the profession.

Better procurement delivers value

Typically, 80% of a Tier 1’s revenue goes to the supply chain, which is often multi-tiered and involves a lot of small businesses. A significant proportion of that revenue is spent by people who are charged with buying goods or services, along with a wide range of other duties. Procurement is not their full time job.

The School has designed an e-learning module for people who have buying as part of their job, or people who are new to the procurement profession. It will help you understand the basic principles and skills of procurement.

This module introduces the basic principles of good procurement for those people and/or those who are new to the profession and want to learn some basic skills.
