Procurement institute attends local summit
A top-level delegation from the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS), lead by its Managing Director, Mr André Coetzee, will attend the 3rd Namibia Procurement, Supply Chain and Logistics (NPSCL) Summit, scheduled for 15 and 16 March at the Windhoek Country Club Resort.
In addition, the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) will use the summit as platform to launch its Namibian branch.
This year’s summit focuses on the theme of “Lets Get Practical: Real Success Stories”, in supply chain, tenders, purchasing, commerce and logistics and it will officially be opened by the President, HE Dr Hage Geingob.
According to AfriClan Events, the NPSCL Summit is now in its third year running and getting bigger and better to the benefit of the patrons.
“This 3rd edition of the NPSCL Summit promises to exceed your expectations and build upon the successes and recommendations of the 2014 and 2015 editions. New speakers will be added to the panel bringing a new burst of energy while previous years’ speakers will be retained,” said Prince Madziva, Director, AfriClan.
Giving a glimpse of the presentations, Madziva said “Since Namibia has just passed the new Procurement Bill (Tendering), this will be a key point of discussion at the summit.”
The 4th National Development Plan (NDP4) identifies logistics and transport as a priority sector and this will also feature as one of the key points of discussion at the summit.
“Furthermore, at the event the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) will officially launch its Namibian branch” announced Madziva.
He stated that the agenda is influenced by the theme and is meant to give direction, comparison and advice to the delegates so that they can make informed decisions on what works and what does not especially when faced with many Procurement and Logistics management philosophies or models to choose from.
Professor Eugene Madejski from the National University of Science and Technology will chair the summit. Prof. Madesjski moderated the first two installments of this event plus the Mauritius chapter in Port Louis in June 2015 and will chair the Angola chapter come June 2016.
