Public Procurement:

Public procurement is only an extension of the personal procurement by two key words i.e. transparency and fairness. When we take up any construction work for ourselves or make personal purchases or hire of any services, we always try to ensure that we get the value for money, good quality product and timely delivery. In case of public procurement we have to go a little further i.e. in addition ensure that procurement is done in a transparent fair and equitable manner.

Adhering to the canons of public procurement is in fact a tight rope walk involving a balance between transparent and fair action on one side and achieving timely delivery of quality goods at competitive rates on the other side. It is indeed going to be more demanding to perform the task with the implementation of the Right to Information Act 2005. Now all our actions and decisions are open for scrutiny by public at large.

The objective of the training on Public Procurement is to update the participants’ knowledge and skills in procurement under the provisions of different Acts & Rules which are in place. This training will help the participants to understand the basic principles of financial management, understand and follow the provisions contained in the various applicable rules. It will also enable the participants to prepare tender documents.

Service Management:

Delivering services to citizens is at the heart of what the government does. Tasks like paying taxes, renewing driving licenses, and applying for benefits are often the most tangible interactions citizens have with the government. Services are therefore critical in shaping trust and perceptions of the Government sector.

A “citizen journey” is the entire experience that a person has when seeking a government service. The journey has a discrete beginning and end, and because it is typically multi-touch and multi-channel, it is also cross-functional in nature. A citizen journey is anchored in how people think about their experience as a result of delivery of services to the Citizens by the Government.

Citizens today expect more transparent, accessible, and responsive services from the Government. This training programme is designed to help the frontline employees of various departments deliver citizen related services more effectively and efficiently. Some of the benefits are:

  • Timely delivery of service
  • Improvement of Performance of the Frontline employees
  • Quality delivery of Services
  • Step towards Citizen centric services.

Contract Management:

Contract is also called a business relationship. Understandably, suppliers and the government get into a large number of contractual relationships for providing goods and services. A company gets into a contractual relationship with the state to get a project, licence or business. Suppliers and government get into contractual relationships for raw material and component suppliers and service providers.

Very often, contract failures lead to inefficient performance, financial losses, and disruption of work; arbitration and litigation; loss of reputation; and many other losses. Thus, it has become important for government officials to understand the rights, responsibilities, and obligations arising from contracts.

The objective of the programme is to understand the significance of the existing terms of contracts.

These training programmes are designed in close coordination with Centre for World Trade Organization, Indian Institute of Foreign Trade, Delhi to deepen engagement and cooperation of the State in the area of WTO and international trade issues.
