The Procurement & Contract Management Framework Standard for Local Government (PCMF)
With our vast Local Government experience ArcBlue has unmatched insights into the opportunities and challenges of procurement and contract management for the sector.
We have worked with a core group of councils to put together a Standard Framework that is best practice, fit for purpose, affordable and quick to implement.
BEST PRACTICE ACROSS FIVE KEY DIMENSIONS
The framework incorporates best practice across the five interrelated dimensions that have been designed around the evolving needs of Australian Local Government – digitally enabled by our online hub!
WHY UTILISE THE STANDARD FRAMEWORK?
Easily implement current best practice templates and guidance to uplift council compliance and performance
YOUR FRAMEWORK - DIGITALLY ENABLED
The Framework lives within our online portal, embedded as an interactive document suite with guided buying tools to allow for a simple and effective user experience for your stakeholders.
Within the portal, known as mybuy LG, your Framework will link to other tools, training, guidance, news & third-party eProcurement systems. The online Standard Framework is accessed via a subscription package.
HOW YOUR FRAMEWORK WORKS
We have defined the best approach to address to the common goals of simple, standard and consistent procurement practice that is compliant and delivers value. A standard framework and guidance allows procurement to be strategic.
Access, implementation and training of the Standard Framework will be provided. You will access a carefully curated framework, template suite and guidance that remains up to date with legislation and leading practices. We will continually provide inductions and refresher training as part of the subscription with opportunities for more advanced training in all strategic procurement and contract best practice.
The Framework is designed as standard best practice to be deployed in full, however deployment options can be tailored to councils needs as a bespoke solution if needed. It is important to understand the connectivity of all parts of the framework and the impacts of making these changes.
We can assist to deploy the entire framework and documents in conjunction with Portt, VendorPanel or other council systems. Talk to us about options.
