William Angliss Institute, as a leader in the provision of training and education across its specialities - foods, tourism, hospitality, and events, is an active participant in the local economy and the industries we specialise in. Angliss is non-discriminatory and encourages participation and competition from various suppliers including small and medium enterprises, social benefit suppliers and locally based businesses. Our Procurement Policy and Framework align with the Victorian Government Purchasing Board (VGPB) supply policies and directives established under the Financial Management Act 1994 (VIC).
William Angliss Institute's approach to procurement is underpinned by four key principles:
- Value for money
- Scalability and risk
Value for money
When making procurement decisions Angliss will use its judgment of a range of financial and non-financial factors, such as quality, cost, fit for purpose, the total cost of ownership, and risk. As well as generating social, economic, and environmental outcomes that benefit the communities in which we operate.
Decisions made by authorised staff are formed following the William Angliss Institute Procurement Framework. All Angliss employees and contractors conduct procurement activities using appropriate capability and exercise appropriate levels of delegation to provide value for money outcomes.
Ensuring standards of behaviour and actions in the conduct of procurement processes including equity, confidentiality, avoiding conflicts of interest, open and fair competition and confidence in the integrity of government procurement processes.
Scalability and risk
The risk of the procurement activity will be assessed to ensure the appropriate capability and processes are in place in relation to the complexity and risk associated with the purchase of goods and services. Angliss will leverage Victorian Government State Purchasing Contracts and Panels from time to time to minimise risk and leverage the value of group buying.
