The Opportunity

 

We have an ongoing opportunity for a Procurement Manager to be a part of our Commercial team within Transport for NSW. We are accountable for the management of 3rd party agreements, governance, and probity and compliance for commercial and procurement activities. We also handle development and implementation of procurement and delivery strategies, collaborative contracts management, contract dispute resolution, and deploying procurement and commercial resources into projects across the business.

 

This role plays a key part in managing the practical implementation of the NSW Aboriginal Procurement Policy (NSWAPP) and Aboriginal Participation in Construction (APiC) across our Infrastructure & Services group (I&S).

 

Reporting to the Senior Procurement Manager, the primary purpose of the role is to co-develop and coordinate the creation of an Aboriginal Procurement Strategy, and advise on NSWAPP and APiC requirements and opportunities to our project teams. In addition, responsibilities of your role include:

Supporting in the development of procurement and contract documentation to reflect Aboriginal participation commitments
Developing reporting frameworks to track progress and compliance, and ensure continuous improvement,
Liaising with other Transport cluster agencies and NSW Government agencies on best practice and lessons learned in implementing these policies,
Acting as an advocate for change, including enhancing understanding of the importance of Aboriginal participation across the business

 

We are looking for a motivated individual who will participate in oversight, strategy, and direction; and lead performance improvement in the implementation of the agency’s development of the Aboriginal Participation in Construction (APiC) program, as well as Aboriginal participation in non-infrastructure procurement across the Infrastructure & Services team.
