COURSE ON PROCUREMENT PROCESSES AND PRACTICE FOR MARINE AIDS TO NAVIGATION
19 – 23 June 2023
IALA HQ, Saint Germain En Laye, France
About the course
Understanding procurement terminology, principles and processes is essential knowledge for those procuring AtoN goods and services. AtoN professionals are not necessarily procurement experts and do not need to be, but a good understanding of procurement best practices can be extremely useful to help navigate potential procurement issues.
This course forms the full IALA Procurement course, incorporating the content of both the IALA Principles of Procurement and Managing the Procurement Process courses.
This course is open to all students irrespective of previous procurement experience but would be particularly suited to AtoN managers, those providing AtoN administration support and AtoN suppliers.
Benefits of participation
How do I write a business case to purchase a new AtoN? What should I include in a specification to ensure my new AtoN is fit for purpose? How do I choose a supplier from a selection of tender submissions?
The course will provide practical examples of AtoN procurement, and students will learn skills and be given practical tools that they can apply in their everyday work to assist with these typical procurement questions.
Participants are awarded a certificate of successful completion of the course.
