Local Government Procurement Annual Conference

The Matrix of Supply Chain
Connect the Moving Parts

The LGP Annual Conference is the most important procurement conference within NSW Local Government, bringing together professionals who focus on sourcing and managing goods and services to achieve strategic objectives for their organisation.

LGP Annual Conference 2019

The conference will be held at Doltone House - Darling Island, 48 Pirrama Rd, Pyrmont NSW 2009 from 24th to 25th October 2019. This conference will bring a practical approach to identifying and understanding the varied and different supply chains that currently exist within local government.

A concept rarely discussed in our sector, supply chains apply to any council that builds a new road, playground or sources a new piece of plant equipment.  Equally, we have a supply chain process in recruiting new staff, sourcing energy and electricity, buying library books or IT equipment.

We as procurement professionals in local government can add greater value to our councils and our local communities by understanding and positively influencing these supply chains. 

Engineering Stream - NEW

Engineers in councils are the largest procurers, they  manage the largest expenditure budgets, arguably engage the most number of contractors and suppliers in a council each year, and therefore they carry the most risk in managing council funds.

This year, concurrent to our main conference session we will run an ‘Engineering Stream’ to help local government engineers who want to be better in the supply chain and procurement aspect of their role.

LGP’s signature event for 2019 will give all our attendees an opportunity to build knowledge, workshop together, hear council case studies and experts explain how to connect all the moving parts that make up the matrix of our supply chains.
