Procurement planning is part of MBIE’s Te Whānau Manaaki suite of learning for staff who procure or manage social services.

Te Whānau Manaaki explores cultural competency and procurement practices that support more effective social services partnering. The planning stage of the procurement cycle focuses on two areas:

  • Planning for Better Outcomes -  Whakaritenga (to arrange or negotiate) explores how practitioners can hone planning practices to promote better outcomes for the communities they serve.
  • Writing and Communication for Better Outcomes - Whakawhitinga (to cross over or bridge) examines writing and communication practices during the planning stage of procurement.

Each consists of an online module and a wānanga (workshop).

  Who is it for:  All procurement practitioners  - all stages of experience.

   Duration:  Self - paced
