Public procurement is a process that occurs when a government organization or a public authority purchases from external suppliers. Public authorities in Europe spend over two thousand billion euros a year purchasing goods and services, and this huge purchasing power forces suppliers to become more innovative as they have to produce higher quality products at lower prices. Public authorities in Europe have introduced procurement rules which are designed to increase competition between suppliers.
Alison's diploma course has been created by Procurement Academy, an institute dedicated to training procurement professionals.
The course covers topics such as best practices for developing specifications, what procedures are used during the procurement process, how to write the Request for Tender (RFT) document, implementing the public procurement process, and the ethics associated with the procurement process.
