Generic Procurement Recruitment

The State Procurement Board, through its Capability Development Plan, has developed and introduced the "Generic Procurement Recruitment and Selection System" (GPRS).

The GPRS provides guidance on:

  • identifying and developing an appropriate position description based on:
    • the whole of government endorsed classifications standards;
    • the Australian Qualifications Framework competencies for public sector procurement; and
    • the Australian Procurement and Construction Council's (APCC) "Aspirational Capability Matrix for Government Procurement Professionals" (this publication outlines nationally agreed standard job descriptions and core competencies).
  • developing appropriate recruitment and selection processes and criteria based on:
    • the Commissioner for Public Employment standards and whole of government recruitment practices; and
    • the Government Reform Commission's Good Practice Guide - Recruitment.
