Priority Saskatchewan Procurement Training

Procurement Training: Module 1

The public service makes thousands of purchases every year. The Priority Saskatchewan team has an action plan to modernize how we make these purchases.

It’s a best-practice approach to ensuring Saskatchewan businesses are treated fairly.

It also gives us tools to decide which offer promises the best value rather than simply the lowest initial price.

This introductory training is helpful for anyone that interacts with the private sector. Talk to your procurement colleagues and leadership team about attending.

Each session is a half day.
