ICT Procurement Sourcing Specialist – Customer Experience (CX) Program

Sourcing Specialist to provide dedicated procurement support to the Customer Experience (CX) Program procurement activity

The ICT Procurement Team is currently supporting the Client's CX Program with a number of existing procurement activities and two further major procurement activities are planned for 2019.
To date, the ICT Procurement Team has worked closely with the CX Program team to plan and execute these procurement activities and to provide guidance in relation to evaluation of offers and negotiation of contract arrangements, primarily in an advisory capacity only. The CX Program has expressed interest in a greater level of assistance which would enable a more active role for procurement in the preparation of procurement planning documentation, evaluation of offers and contract negotiations.

Given the current workload of the ICT Procurement team and the strategic importance and accelerated delivery timeframes for the CX Program, it is proposed that an additional procurement specialist be recruited to join the ICT Procurement team for a 6 month period to enable dedicated support of the CX Program procurements.

Duties and responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
• Contribute effectively to all aspects of ICT procurement including procurement plans, specification / tender development, management and evaluation, with a particular focus on facilitating procurements for marketing technology solutions and services associated with the client's CX Program of work.
• Contribute effectively to all aspects of supplier negotiations, including commercial and contract negotiation.
• Independently prepare ICT procurement contracts based on client's specifications and approved template terms and manage the execution of ICT contracts in accordance with client's Delegations Policy.
• Liaise with Client's Legal Services in relation to identified legal risks associated with ICT procurement activities.
• Support IT Managers in following appropriate recruitment and procurement processes to engage resources for project activities.
• Support IT Managers by providing technical writing support.
• Provide a high level of customer service and advice to Client's ICT purchasers in a relevant, timely and accurate manner on matters relating to procurement policy and procedures.
• Publish tenders on the Queensland Government’s Qtenders website and monitor and update as necessary.
• Contribute to the development, implementation and review of ICT procurement strategies and policies and support the Category Manager (ICT) and ICT sub-category managers in the preparation of the ICT Category Management Plan, through spend analysis, demand analysis, market analysis and stakeholder engagement.
• Contribute to the development, implementation and review of ICT procurement guidelines, templates, website and procurement system, consistent with the requirements of the client's Procurement Policy and procurement best practice.
• Maintaining sufficient knowledge of contemporary ICT technologies and market trends to effectively contribute to the review of ICT procurement documentation and to enable effective communication with ICT subject matter experts

• A degree (preferably in Information Technology, Law, Commerce or Business) with subsequent relevant experience working in or supporting a large IT department; or extensive experience and specialist expertise in IT Procurement for large organisations; or an equivalent combination of relevant experience and/or education/training.
• Knowledge of procurement policy and procedures as they apply to IT procurement in a large public sector or commercial organisation.
• Experience in leading and advising on significant procurement activities from planning, risk management, and development of tender documentation through to vendor negotiation and contract delivery.
• Excellent interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills, including demonstrated negotiation abilities, with experience in consulting with and influencing stakeholders to deliver outcomes within a large environment, preferably at a University.
• High level analytical skills and ability sufficient to assess problems, articulate trends and strategies based on that analysis, and propose appropriate solutions and provide concise reports against indicators for management.
• A proven ability to be highly organised and self-managing, with the ability to meet tight deadlines, manage conflicting priorities and set realistic goals with minimal supervision or direction.

• Experience in managing end to end procurement processes for the procurement of marketing technology solutions and services and associated CX change projects.
• Sound knowledge of the client's policies, procedures and documentation, or the ability to acquire this knowledge rapidly.
• Knowledge and understanding of current State Government legislation with regards to procurement, or the ability to acquire this knowledge rapidly.
• Procurement related qualification/s (e.g. Level 3 procurement training, CIPSA accreditation)
