Professional Development

LGA Procurement offers training developed specifically for the South Australian procurement industry within the Local Government sector.

Our training courses provide expert knowledge to council staff working within the procurement cycle.

There are three areas of training:

Council staff procurement training

Procurement is an essential council function and an area of both risk and opportunity – be it low level purchasing, through to strategic, high value, high risk complex procurement.

Our core modules are in high demand in the sector and are designed to increase confidence in procurement principles and strengthen skills.

Elected Member procurement training

As an essential council function that presents both risk and opportunity our module for Elected Members seeks to increase confidence in procurement principles and strengthen fundamental understandings of procurement policy and probity requirements (including ICAC).

VendorPanel training

For ease of access, most LGA Procurement contracts are available via VendorPanel – a free to use, online portal that meets probity requirements and provides users with reporting and audit trails.
