Why You Should Attend This Course?
Majority of the public service organizations in the country have suffered colossal setbacks in their attempt to deliver the dividends of good governance (better improved social services) to the populace. The reason for this is not farfetched as it is evident in the declining levels of competence, transparency and accountability that characterized the processes of administration in the public and civil service, the various mechanisms for checks and balances notwithstanding.
Procurement as a vital and sensitive activity in the service has been most exposed to the damaging effects of these declining values. The unavoidable consequence of this is the dwindling public service delivery to indigenes and sojourners of the country. Change, as generally concurred is the only constant attribute of the nation’s socioeconomic and socio-political experiences and as such, every ambitious public and private entity has to be opened to the continuous and progressive development and acquisition of updated and current skills that will guarantee improved service delivery to the country. Procurement also represents a salient activity in the public service with a far-reaching effect on the overall performance of the nation’s private and public service. There is no doubt that improvement in this activity, through the capacity building and development of the right personnel will result in improved public funds management, procurement of standard goods, works and competent consultancy services.
In the light of the above, it is of utmost importance to underscore the capacity building of the officers of the private, public and civil service saddled with the responsibility of procurement and bid management in the art of contemporary procurement of goods, works and consultancy services. It is interesting to note that this workshop is meant to provide the participants with adequate and up-to-date skills, values, techniques and tools in procurement and bid processes in order to help them appreciate the relevance of good procurement principles to their organizations and the public service in general.
The training is also designed to sufficiently equip them with the skills and knowledge required in positioning the public and civil service in a vantage position to effectively deliver to the public, the services required of them and to consistently aspire for greater attainment and accomplishments in years to come, through effective and standard procurement and bid processes in the acquisition of works, goods and consultancy services, and indeed, in the prudent and effective management of public funds.
