About this event

Back for another year, the 2021 Stronger Communities Cluster Procurement Forum is set to shake things up.

The event is designed to promote collaboration, knowledge sharing and innovation across our agencies. It’s an opportunity for you to network across the Cluster, make a tangible difference in people’s lives and have fun! This year, it will include a six-month cross-Cluster collaboration exercise, delivered virtually.For this, your newly-formed team will develop procurement initiatives that deliver against the Premier’s Priorities. Then mid-year, you’ll present to a panel of senior executives and special guests at a networking event. The winning team’s initiative will be implemented across the Cluster. The theme for the 2021 Forum is ‘Innovation and Sustainability across the Procurement Lifecycle’, and it all kicks off on 1 February.

Launch - Monday 1 February

DCJ Deputy Secretary Corporate Services John Hubby will open the Forum, provide an overview and host a Get to Know the Cluster segment.

Innovation Session One - Wednesday 17 February

Guest speakers from NSW Rural Fire Service and DCJ Deputy Secretary Housing, Disability and District Services Paul Vevers will present on the topic: ‘Turning adversity into opportunity: delivering outcomes during COVID-19’.

You will then have a chance to meet with your innovation mentor and collaboration team. This will be an opportunity to discuss ideas and begin developing your pitch.

Innovation Session Two - Wednesday 17 March

A panel of industry experts, including guest speakers from Fire and Rescue NSW, will discuss the advantages of a circular economy. In particular, they’ll focus on ‘How investment in social outcomes is changing NSW’.

This will be followed by a second team collaboration session where you’ll have a chance to refine your pitch.

Innovation Session Three - Wednesday 14 April

Guest speakers from NSW Police and DCJ Supplier Excellence will present on the topic ‘Delivering social outcomes from procurement partnerships’.

This will be followed by a third team collaboration session where you can finalise your pitch ahead of the May event.
