The procurement for the future capability - what good looks like

Explore supplier and provider views on what capabilities need developing, to deliver a more effective supplier and agency experience of government procurement. We’re keen to hear your thoughts on the future of procurement capability and what good might look like. We’re also interested in hearing about supplier and agency experiences and any challenges with the current state.

You should come if you're:

  • A supplier - your organisation’s representative(s) will join a group of peers with regular involvement in government procurement processes, from across the business and NGOs sector.
  • An agency - these concept labs will likely involve a blend of procurement and learning and development type conversations. So, we’re looking for people who have a good understanding of people development practices and understand procurement, even from a role outside of the procurement function. They might even suit your HR partner.

Topics we will cover

We’ll be defining the capability that is needed in the procurement system to ensure that the customer experience is efficient and effective. We’re particularly interested in:

  • supplier insights about the current levels of capability and practice they experience
  • what capabilities we should be developing and promoting across government teams (including technical and soft skills)
  • what support is needed to make it easier to navigate government procurement.

Developing procurement professional personas, including:

  • describing an ideal procurement person,
  • current capability gaps you see, including with your customers, their attributes, behaviours and motivations.
  • developing a high-level, system-wide, procurement capability roadmap.

Humankind are facilitating these concept labs and promise an engaging session that creates a safe and open opportunity for the group to explore these topics.
