Procurement Capability Assessment (PCA)

It is more important than ever, in the economic challenges we face, that public procurement is conducted as effectively as possible.

The PCA will assist organisations improve their structure, capability, processes and ultimately performance, by attaining the best standards that are appropriate to the scale and complexity of their business.

The PCA will assess capability in key areas against common criteria and standards which will allow public bodies, locally, at sector level and nationally, to identify where best practice already exists, where there are gaps and where continuous improvements and efficiencies can be implemented.

Organisations will have the opportunity, where appropriate, to develop and implement improvement plans as a result of the PCA with assistance from their relevant Centre of Expertise.
