Capability Development


The State Procurement Board (the Board) acknowledges the importance of capability building as a key result area in its strategic planning. This aligns with its obligations under the State Procurement Act 2004, in particular, the requirement “to assist in the development and delivery of training and development courses and activities relevant to the procurement operations of public authorities”.

As a result of the Board’s collaboration with the training sector, there are now greater learning opportunities in the area of procurement training and development.
