PSC102 - Rejuvenating Competition in Procurement – the Bidding Process Perspective

Competition is one of the foremost principles in both Public and Private Sector procurement, for different reasons. For Public Sector Procurement, the number of relevant competition there is contributes to the finalization of Value-For-Money contract.

The course will run through bidding documentation and processes for Goods and Works (RFQs, RFBs, etc.) and Consulting Services (RFPs); and the differing processes for Goods, Works and Services.
