HSV Health Purchasing Policies training

We have developed the HSV Health Purchasing Policies (HSV PPs) short course to educate Victorian public health services on the HSV PPs and their requirements. 

The training includes:  

  • HSV Purchasing Policy 1 Governance. 
  • HSV Purchasing Policy 2 Strategic Analysis. 
  • HSV Purchasing Policy 3 Market Approach. 
  • HSV Purchasing Policy 4 Contract Management and Asset Disposal. 
  • HSV Purchasing Policy 5 Collective Purchasing and Supply Chain. 

The HSV PPs guide health services on best-practice procurement and include information on: 

  • greater oversight of government spending 
  • a principles-based approach to implementing probity strategy into internal procurement practices 
  • simplified processes. 
  • value for money. 

The HSV PPs training supports health services to meet their obligations under the Health Services Act 1988 (Vic) and the HSV PPs.
