Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) Procurement and Logistics Centre in cooperation with Procurement Policy Agency have organised training in procurement skills from 9-12 April.
As many as 125 participants from UGM consisting of staff and lecturers took part in the training. It was expected to give knowledge to the participants on Presidential Regulations No 54/2010 on Procurement of Goods and Services.
Event chairman, Agus Sudaryanto, said the participants obtained training from officials who had experience in this area. Materials that were taught include Building Learning Commitment, Introduction to Procurement of Goods and Services, Preparation of Procurement, Implementation through Self-management, Utilisation of Domestic Production, and Procurement using Grants, and Introduction to E-Procurement.
Agus said this training was important for UGM procurement staff. Not everyone can do the job, only those with certificates are authorised to do it. “This training is very important for procurement staff to know the process and regulations in line with existing regulations,” he said on Thursday (12/4).
After the four-day training, the participants would do a certification test and those that pass would obtain a certificate.
“Enthusiasm of UGM procurement staff is very high, but the quota is limited. I hope the training would improve the capacity of the staff in procuring government goods and services,” said Agus.
