Procurement managers from right across Australia’s public sector are continually striving to ensure they deliver the best value for money for tax payers and contribute to the strategic goals of their organisations. The government expectations for expenditure and management of public funds and achieving value for money outcomes lends to public sector procurement being open to public scrutiny and accountability in ways that may be experienced in the private sector. Procurement activities of the public sector are governed by a set of general principles and legislative requirements that create situations which are increasingly difficult to manage, whilst expectations continue to rise.
With budgets tight at a federal, state and local level, strategic procurement has never been more important and this summit will bring together some of the most exciting and innovative local and international case studies with keynote presentations from leading public sector CPO’s and interactive panel discussions to address the most significant challenges procurement managers face today.

“Probably one of the most thought provoking summit's I've been to in many years. Connected CPO's from all over the place and created networks that will last long after the summit. That is where the gold is.
Pleasure to be here, pleasure to present and pleasure to be able to network and share stuff.”
