SPEND MANAGEMENT AND PUBLIC PROCUREMENT

Start Day : Mon 22 April
End Day: Sat 27 April

Public Holiday Thursday, April 25

Module Description:

Managers face the problem to spend the money supplied by either shareholders or taxpayers to deliver benefits in terms of value creation for the organisation or services to the stakeholders.
The current management models are based on the concept of lean organisations, with less internal resources and fixed costs, and a significant use of outsourced resources and variable costs. As a consequence, procurement is the main source of costs and responsible for the quality of outcomes, and its role may be considered strategic and critical in achieving the objectives of any organisation.
Spend management is a holistic approach to cost generating activities, based on the coherent definition of objectives, policies, control methods, in order to:
 Maintain spend under control, i.e. avoid maverick spending outside the objectives;
 Maximise benefits, by means of both spend qualification (consistency with the objectives) and quality (no extra costs induced by the acquisition process);
 Focus on value creation, by assuring that the cost of achieving benefits will not exceed their value.
The module approaches procurement from the spend management and value creation points of view, and covers issues from the identification of needs and the evaluation of opportunities, risk analysis and mitigation, total cost evaluation, up to public procurement procedures for goods, services, works.

OBJECTIVES
The module is intended to give participants a broad knowledge of the key drivers and tools and develop skills necessary to plan and manage procurement processes, with special focus on the public sector.
