If you register for assessment by filling in the form below, we will send out materials to get you started on your NZQA Qualification right away.


Please complete the form below if you wish to apply for fully funded NZQA Level 6 Procurement training and assessment through the Clever Buying programme. This involves five work-based procurement assignments, plus attendance at a two-day Clever Buying course, in the first few months. Typical timeframe is 6-18 months.

Your form will be automatically forwarded to Connexis ITO, who will then be in touch to enrol you for this NZQA Qualification through a Training Agreement.

To find out more or inquire about an in-house course, please click here. You'll need to cover at least eight people if in a main centre (ten people in provincial areas); and you can choose the time and the place of training at your convenience.


1.  If you only want to undertake the two-day training course and NOT follow up on the assignments for the NZQA qualification, your training will cost you or your organisation $1400 plus GST. In that case, please click here.

2. Some course venues may require all trainees to either show proof of being vaccinated or a negative COVID test. Please come prepared or contact us about alternative on-line options.

Please read carefully the commitments and requirements for this qualification below.

Note that by completing this form, you are committing to training and assessment (through work-based procurement assignments) for the next 6 - 18 months (typically).

You must agree to these conditions to be eligible for registration for this fully funded NZQA qualification.

  • Completion of 5 workplace-based practical procurement assignments with at least one deliverable every three months
  • Completed inputs and outputs of the Clever Buying Course – including Clever Buying Workbook, Procurement Plan and Response Form
  • Professional Discussions (interviews via video )
  • In the first 3-4 months, I will attend a training course, valued at $1400 + GST. Assessment of this qualification typically is valued at approximately $3,000 + GST, depending on the level of guidance provided by the assessor.
  • Provided I have a training agreement  and Training Plan issued by Connexis ITO prior to starting training, these fees will be covered by NZ Government as part of the TTAF fund.
  • If I do not show up to a training course which I have booked and had confirmed; or cancel and do not find a replacement within one week of the course start; I will pay Clever Buying directly for the course fees of $1400 plus GST.
  • If assessment time is likely to exceed the $3,000 Government-funded allowance, I will be notified.
  • I agree to pay for any assessor time that exceeds $3,000.
In the (hopefully) unlikely event that costs are incurred because you don't show up to a training course or cancel late as described above; or if additional assessor time is required (up to $3,000), you will be invoiced directly and we will include this reference on your invoice. For your guidance, Training Course costs are $1400 + GST; additional assessor time could typically be up to $2500 + GST.
