PD Session 2C

Subject: “Excellence – Implementing Risk-based Approvals”

Abstract: The session will detail the design and implementation of a risk-based approval process for procurement at PWGSC. The business process redesign (BPR) and risk-based approach forms a key component of a broader Procurement Renewal initiative. The case-centred approach will cover the overall context and BPR strategy, the risk-based methodology, and the pilot & implementation. The methodology assesses complexity to identify the skills required for the procurement and measures risk to ensure the appropriate level of delegation & approval. The session will be led by Jo-Anne who is heading up the procurement process re-design & implementation and Tristan who helped design the risk-based methodology.
