Professionalism of human resources (HR) in managing the procurement of goods and services
Bogor – The Government Goods / Services Procurement Policy Institute (LKPP) assesses that the professionalism of human resources (HR) in managing the procurement of goods and services is important so that government procurement spending becomes more efficient and effective.
Clarity of roles for procurement institutions is also considered to increase accountability, responsibility and performance as well as service levels. Head of LKPP Agus Prabowo said that procurement is not only about selecting providers, but also there are several important outputs that must be considered. Therefore, government procurement reform initiatives are needed.
