​​Procurement Capability Index

​The Procurement Capability Index (PCI) is a self-assessment tool that measures agencies' procurement capability.

All agencies that are mandated to use the Government Rules of Sourcing are required to complete the PCI.

The PCI covers the complete cycle of good procurement and measures agency procurement capability across eleven categories:

  • Strategic planning for commercial outcomes.
  • Procurement strategy alignment with agency key result areas.
  • Commercial leadership to drive outcomes.
  • Procurement function engagement with agency stakeholders.
  • Governance and organisation of the procurement function.
  • Alignment with policy and processes.
  • Sourcing and collaboration.
  • Supplier relationship management.
  • Management of people and skills development.
  • Knowledge and performance management.
  • Use of technology processes and tools.

Your agency’s PCI self-assessment will be supported by a review and moderation process that includes peer review, external checks and supplier feedback to provide confidence that the results are relevant and accurate.

The PCI self-assessment tool will generate three reports:

  1. the PCI evaluation result
  2. the PCI evaluation summary
  3. the BASS (Better Administration and Support Services) summary.

The annual review provides a full picture of capability across all participating agencies. It directly supports and is linked to the Significant Service Contracts Framework, giving senior leadership an evidence-based assessment of agency strengths and opportunities for improvement.

The PCI is also included as a component of the Treasury’s Investor Confidence Rating with a weighting of 5% of the total score.
