Procurement Professionals

The Community of Procurement Professionals aims to help procurement professionals working in the NSW public sector build their capability in procurement and contract management.

The Community aims to achieve three main goals:

  1. Identify development needs of and opportunities for members
  2. Foster collaboration and sharing amongst members
  3. Harness collective knowledge and expertise of members to lift sector wide procurement capability

The Community is supported by NSW Procurement, a business unit within NSW Treasury.

Joining our community

The community is an active forum for members to share best practice, experience and learnings. It also serves as a hub for providing practical resources and insights that support the delivery of procurement savings within the sector. Our members are invited to events to meet other procurement professionals and hear from key speakers on a range of procurement topics. You will be invited to participate in programs that provide development opportunities within the NSW public sector. The community is also open to federal, local and other state counterparts.
