ABSTRACT
The article reports that the British Ministry of Defense (MOD) is adopting a blended approach to procurement training to help its staff keep up with the rapid development of technology and policy in the sector. The DPMT, part of the MOD's procurement arm that manages acquisition training for the department's staff, has just signed an eight-year, £ 25m deal with LogicaCMG PLC, which will manage the transition from instructor-led to blended learning. LogicaCMG has been working with DPMT for the past seven years, improving its instructor-led acquisition training. The basic problem was that major procurements were failing, said Keith Scott, business manager for outsourcing services at LogicaCMG. The idea is that they will be able to acquire skills as acquisition projects progress, so they are always ready for the next phase. The company will work with DPMT to make courses available electronically, so that staff can access them online when they need to learn. The idea is that they will be able to acquire skills as acquisition projects progress, so they are always ready for the next phase.
