The Minister for Economic Development David Parker urges procurement leaders to use procurement to overcome some of the country’s biggest challenges.

Using government procurement to support wider social, economic and environmental outcomes was one of the agenda items at the Procurement Functional Leadership Advisory Group (a group of procurement managers across government) on Thursday.

As not all possible outcomes can be leveraged in every contract, the Government recently decided on a targeted approach to achieving more sustainable outcomes from procurement, focusing on where we can achieve the greatest benefit for the country.

At the meeting, Minister Parker outlined the importance of this programme of work and urged attendees to use procurement to make progress in the areas of construction skills and training, procurement of lower emission vehicles, stimulation of local innovation and better conditions for workers.

“I want to emphasise how important the work that you do is and try to engage your best efforts to achieve these outcomes. Using procurement is a powerful way to induce change,” says Minister Parker.
