Procuring for Impact - Procurement Excellence for Community Outcomes

ArcBlue is partnering with EquiP in 2018 to deliver the Procuring for Impact program to New Zealand local government organisations. Procuring for Impact will ensure councils are able to deliver quality services for communities through increased savings, improved probity and economic and social outcomes. 

Procuring for Impact will combine two ArcBlue streams of activity:

The LEAP Program

The LEAP Leading Practice Procurement Program is a practical, outcome-focused program that uses regular spend analysis to inform tailored development plans along with a procurement support program for local government organisations. 

  • Assess the maturity of your procurement & contract management function
  • Embed best practice across your organisation
  • Delivery savings and continuous improvement
  • Analyse spend and access data dashboards
  • Benchmark performance across your region and against KPIs

The LEARNING Program

The LEARNING Program utilises the 70:20:10 principles to deliver embedded learning to individual team members to increase capability and performance across your procurement and contract management team. 

  • Face to face training workshops across a range of topics including Procurement, Contract Management, Probity and Specification Writing
  • Access a suite of 50 eLearning modules to ensure consistency of learning across your organisation
  • Online competency assessments to measure, track and benchmark your council's procurement and contracting capability.
