Procurement capability index
Explains the requirements agencies must comply with in respect of the Procurement Capability Index.
- An agency must submit a completed Procurement Capability Index (PCI) self-assessment to MBIE annually by 1 October each year.
- The Procurement Functional Leader may, at its discretion, exempt an agency from having to submit a PCI self-assessment.
Procurement Capability Index
The Procurement Capability Index (PCI) tool assists you in evaluating and building the procurement capability within your agency. It helps you to identify areas where additional focus may be required, and put in place a procurement capability improvement plan. Submitting PCI self-assessments to MBIE also provides the Procurement Functional Leader with a cross-government view of procurement capability and areas where more support may be required.
The Procurement Functional Leader may exempt an agency from the requirement to submit their self-assessment to MBIE if deemed appropriate (e.g. there is no designated procurement function or the agency utilises AoG contracts and only undertakes low risk and low value procurements). However, even in these instances, agencies are still strongly encouraged to use the tool as means to improve their agency’s procurement capability.
