Accountability, Transparency, Collaboration and Sustainability are the four principles cited by the Hon Jeanette Powell, Minister for Local Government, in her opening address to the delegates of the IPWEAvic Strategic Contract Management & Procurement Conference held on Thursday 6th October 2011 at Melbourne Exhibition Centre.  Close to 80 delegates gathered to explore issues relating to procurement.  Speakers from Victoiran Auditor Generals Office, Local Government Victoria, DPCD, State Government Department of Treasury and Finance set the scene.  The program was rich in case studies with presentations from a rural shire, Colac Otway, a water authority, Barwon Water, Technologyone on getting your systems in order and GAA on standardising infrastructure design manuals.  A lively panel discussion considered mechanisms to improve collaboration, roles of engineers and procurement professionals in an organisation, forward capital works planning, importance of procurement roadmaps and tips to improve procurement outcomes in organisations.    The day was supported by DPCD for the third consecutive year and the sponsor for the day was Technologyone.
