What is the programme about?
The programme is aimed at graduates and professionals who require specialist skills to manage a public procurement function in the context of construction works and associated design team services. For new graduate entrants to the sector it will provide a competitive edge as they embark on a career in this sector. For professionals who are already working in the area and who may not have such a formal qualification it will provide a skillset to further develop their careers.
The programme will provide an upskilling opportunity for those professionals engaged within the Built Environment sector and this particular subject area is one where there is a recognised managerial skills deficit.
The aim of this programme is to develop strategic thinking about; and a critical understanding of; public procurement in the context of construction works and associated design team services.
On completion of this programme, students should be able to:
• Critically analyse and critique the strategic nature of procurement, the associated EU Directives and Irish legislation.
• Critically analyse and critique construction procurement strategies.
• Develop and critically appraise public procurement performance measures and compliance within their organisation.
