This group supports the professional development of procurement staff through strengthening peer-to-peer knowledge-sharing on best practices, innovative approaches and job descriptions. To facilitate this network of job description focal points has been established as well as the annual publication of a ‘Training Compendium’, detailing the various training/qualification/certification programmes being offered by UN agencies. Work is underway to identify a platform to facilitate the knowledge-sharing aspect, which is at the core of this group’s work.
