The most efficient use of public funds needs to be ensured and public buyers need to be in a position to procure according to the highest standards of professionalism. To ensure students can achieve the highest standards of professionalism, this module will consolidate the academic and practical learning from other Public Procurement and Supply Chain Excellence modules together with an overview of the Public Procurement Reform Programme, into a practical application of the national public procurement policies and procedures using the key support structures and ICT toolsets for practitioners.

Public procurement is facing new challenges especially in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is increasingly expected to: demonstrate best value for public money in ever-constricting budgetary environments; use the opportunities of digitisation and evolving markets; make a strategic contribution to horizontal policy objectives and societal values such as innovation, social inclusion and economic and environmental sustainability; maximise accessibility and show accountability for minimising inefficiencies, waste, irregularities, fraud and corruption, as well as building responsible supply chains.

The Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies (2016) identifies procurement as one of a number of activities requiring special attention in promoting good corporate governance including having a Corporate Procurement Plan. Procurement compliance is essential to enable the HSE and funded agencies achieve greater value for money from the collective procurement activities (cash and non-cash benefits) to support reinvestment into providing high quality healthcare and personal social services.

To ensure students can achieve the highest standards of professionalism, this module will consolidate the academic and practical learning from other Public Procurement and Supply Chain Excellence modules together with an overview of the Public Procurement Reform Programme, into a practical application of the national public procurement policies and procedures using the key support structures and ICT toolsets for practitioners.
