What is IT Procurement?

IT Procurement is a CAUDIT Community of Practice which draws on the skills, knowledge, and influence of software licensing and IT procurement representatives from higher education and research organisations throughout Australasia to improve the negotiations and contracts of ICT software licensing arrangements for member organisations.

IT Procurement assists CAUDIT in achieving superior licensing agreements, pricing, terms and conditions for all CAUDIT member organisations.

Who can become an IT Procurement member?

Staff from software licensing, procurement, contract and asset management areas within CAUDIT member organisations are invited to join.

How can IT Procurement benefit its members?

It provides a forum for members to network and exchange information beneficial to their member organisation.

How do IT Procurement members connect?

Members of IT Procurement are encouraged to share ideas, seek feedback and ask questions. Members connect via the following avenues:

  • IT Procurement Email List
  • Meetings (IT Procurement holds regular meetings, generally every 2 months)

How can CAUDIT help IT Procurement members?

Strategic Procurement is one of the six core activities supporting CAUDIT’s three key strategies of connecting, enabling and challenging.

CAUDIT’s focus on strategic procurement enables significant savings to members across the higher education and research sector. The benefits of CAUDIT’s strategic procurement efforts include improved value for money due to economies of scale, greater leverage in the marketplace to influence product development and direction, and sector savings in procurement staff resources.

The Strategic Procurement Team at CAUDIT is here to assist IT Procurement members and their organisation with strategic procurement initiatives.

The Strategic Procurement Team consists of three CAUDIT staff members:

  • Steve Johnston, Director, Strategic Procurement
