VGPB Procurement Community of Practice Forum 

Procurement Evolution

All government buyers are invited to join us at our next VGPB Community of Practice forum to find out about the Government’s evolving procurement reform agenda.  

It’s an exciting time for procurement in Victoria as we introduce some big changes. 

Mr Russell Yardley, VGPB member will open the forum. Mr Yardley’s career focus has been on innovation, ideas strategy, business and planning in the Information and Communication Technology industry.  

We will also be joined by Bruce Drinkwater and Tim Martin from DTF Construction Policy to discuss some of the developments with the new construction procurement framework.

We’ve also been busy developing a new guide to procuring ethically and locally-produced uniforms and personal protective equipment (PPE ).  

The last few years have been about embedding our new policies, but now our focus moves to implementing E procurement, expanding and harmonising procurement across the wider public sector to support the Government’s reform agenda. 

Come along to find out how you can make an impact on the way the Government procures.  

Topics covered during the forum will include: 

Victoria’s Social Procurement Framework; 

Governance, extending the reach; 

Procurement technology;  

Capability and streamlining processes; and 

Policy and practice – launch of the PPE guide.
