About the Course

Each organisation implements purchasing procedures to ensure open, transparent, and effective procurement. However, ensuring that the team follows these procedures is entirely different. Many companies struggle with procurement compliance due to complacency, negligence, or a desire to move quickly when purchasing new goods or services. However, when policies aren't followed or don't exist, businesses expose themselves to numerous risks, including poor brand image, non-compliance, severe data leaks, etc. Procurement compliance refers to the adherence of individuals responsible for purchasing to establish purchasing rules, procedures, and policies.

The 5-day Professional Certificate in Procurement Compliance training course extends to various aspects, including creating and distributing purchasing policies, monitoring and managing adherence to procurement procedures, assessing procurement risks, and developing risk mitigation strategies. It also involves conducting regular procurement audits, reporting to senior management, and identifying opportunities for enhancing compliance. It will allow delegates to understand the importance of measuring and improving procurement compliance and explore best practices for maximising adherence to purchasing policies. This training programme will also explore different aspects of contractual compliance and process compliance and its associated risk mitigation strategies.
