The Intellectual Property Management (IPM) course & Toolkit for Procurement officers was developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Finance (MOF). The objective of this course is to equip procurement officers in the public sector with fundamental knowledge on IPM to help them respond adequately to key IP concerns and issues relating to procurement.
In providing guidance on procurement training courses, MOF has listed this course as one of the core policy courses in a Financial Circular Minute (i.e. FCM M9/2016 dated 24 May 2016). Procurement officers are strongly encouraged to attend the core courses to help achieve the competencies required for their procurement roles stipulated in the recently mandated Procurement Competency Framework (PCF).
This course is only open to Singapore Civil Servants and Public Officers.
