Public Sector Reform

Public Sector Reform

Public Sector Reform Function was established in September 2010 with procurement reform very much at the centre of initiatives. Deemed ‘one of the best in the public sector’ by the National Procurement Service, this function has helped facilitate the transformation of the procurement landscape within the sector in a number of key ways:

  • Central liaison point between ETBs, the National Procurement Service (NPS), the Dept. of Education and Skills and other key stakeholders
  • Facilitation of ETB participation in national frameworks and contracts in order to achieve significant savings and efficiencies
  • Establishment of the ETB Procurement Network to facilitate networking, resource sharing and the delivery of a comprehensive programme of upskilling for ETB procurement personnel (e.g. public procurement; eTenders; construction procurement)
  • Participation in outreach initiatives with SMEs
  • Development of the ETB Sector’s capacity to design, develop and implement sector-specific procurement initiatives
  • Representing the voice of ETBs at the ‘new centre’ of public procurement in the recently established Office of Government Procurement (OGP)
