Procure goods and services
Information Technology and Government
This unit covers the expenditure of public monies for simple procurement of low value/low risk goods and services using contractual arrangements that include simple tendering and requests for quotation. The unit requires analysis and decision making in the procurement process, which is undertaken under limited supervision. It includes planning and undertaking procurement, managing contractors and completing contractual arrangements. In practice, procuring goods and services overlaps with other generalist and specialist public sector or local government work activities, such as upholding and supporting the values and principles of public service, identifying and treating risks, exercising delegations, applying government processes, encouraging compliance with legislation in the public sector or local government, planning procurement, developing and distributing requests for offers, selecting providers and managing contracts. This unit is not recommended for those who specialise in procurement. It cannot be included in the Certificate IV in Government (Procurement and Contracting). No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of endorsement.
