UK central government currently spends billions each year procuring a wide range of goods and services.
The effectiveness of the services the government provides can have a major impact on the prosperity and security of the whole of the UK.
To assist public sector organisations bench mark and develop those who manage contracts, the UK government (working with professional bodies like IACCM) has created a set of Contract Management Professional Standards.
These standards are at three distinct levels:
The Standards are framed around the Business Acumen, Relationship, Capability and Technical Expertise
The Standards set out the capabilities expected of government professionals who are involved in the management of contracts.
The Standards are designed to assist public sector organisations reflect upon the team’s capabilities and development needs. Public sector organisations will be able to use these standards identify training needs or technical areas of interest. These standards reflect the cross functional nature of contract management and the need to improve our performance in terms of contract management across the public sector.
