Procurement Framework Review
A Procurement & Contract Management case study
This regional Council spans $1,681 square kilometres.
OCM’s has unmatched experience in the local government sector as well as a detailed understanding of Local Government Regulations and Tendering Guidelines. For these reasons, the Council engaged OCM to undertake a procurement policy and procedure review for purchases above $250,000 (excl. GST).
To achieve this objective, OCM engaged in the following activities:
- Undertook a strategic review of the Council’s procurement policy and two procurement procedures against the Local Government Regulations and the Local Government Tendering Guidelines.
Remodelled the existing procurement policies and procedures. The remodelled procedures promoted better practice by allowing employees with little or no procurement experience to easily gain information to key areas of the procurement process, such as planning, RFQ, tender and contract management.
