WELCOME TO CLEVER BUYING

Are you a procurement professional? Got some challenging issues to solve?

Covid-19 Update

We're delighted to let you know that we're operating pretty much as usual under current COVID-Level 2 restrictions. Our normal activities of providing procurement assistance have continued through lockdown, operating via video for procurement planning and advice, development of RFx and other procurement documents, qualified tender evaluations and probity auditing.

We've rescheduled the popular two-day Clever Buying course in Wellington on 2 - 3 June at Rudges Hotel, Wellington airport. It will be operating under all applicable COVID Level 2 guidelines, including physical distancing, contact tracing, etc.

We've also introduced and very successfully trialled an online procurement training course. This runs via eight 1 -2 hour sessions for 2-4 participants. There are activities to be completed between the sessions, which are normally arranged weekly.

If you are interested in procurement support or training, please call us on  021 722 005 or email Caroline.Boot@cleverbuying.com.

 "Best course I have been on for years. Totally relevant and practical, came out buzzing with ideas to improve our RFTs and evaluation processes."

-NZTA Tender Evaluator


"I have found this course very useful in many aspects. Even though I have had many years of experience in procurement, I found the course has helped me a lot in terms of obtaining the industrial knowledge, improving the practical skills, and applying the right techniques to the right jobs.

The course is well-designed and structured thus it is really easy to be picked up by the project or procurement managers who may have different levels of understanding of the rules, guidelines, and procedures and so on. In addition, the way you deliver the course is very professional and memorable, but most importantly it has lots of fun stuff that makes the learning enjoyable and interesting."
