This guide, Public Sector Procurement: Turning Principles into
Practice, is a practical resource to help agencies assess and
improve their procurement activities. The guide provides an
overview of the principles underpinning how procurement should be
carried out, the phases of the procurement cycle, the aims of each
phase and the key steps involved. It also identifies areas of good
practice and the important documentation for each procurement
phase. The guide draws on the Victorian Auditor-General's Office's
environmental scanning, audit planning and performance audit work,
and emphasises areas for particular improvement that have been
identified in previous audits.
