About the Final Activity Book

Welcome to the Final Activity Book for Procurement Stream C.  This stream is aimed at the Certificate IV in Procurement and Contracting, and it is one of the three streams that make up this qualification.

This Final Activity Book has been provided for you to complete the final activities of this stream that will determine your competency.  Upon completion of this Final Activity Book, it must be submitted to your assessor for an assessment.  Therefore, you should take the time to provide reasonably comprehensive and considered answers to the exercises.  While we do not expect that all the pages provided will necessarily be filled, you are expected to provide more than two or three sentences for each of the tasks.  You must demonstrate a level of understanding that meets the expectations of an AQF qualification.

If you find that you require more space than has been provided, please attach extra pages to the relevant section. If you find it necessary to attach additional documentation, please label any such additional documentation clearly so that your assessor understands the meaning of the documents supplied and can easily return them to you.

Upon satisfactory completion of this stream, based on the assessment of this Final Activity Book, you may be eligible to receive a Statement of Attainment for the individual Units of Competency that this stream covers.  You may be eligible to receive the Certificate IV qualification if you satisfactorily complete all stream associated with the qualification. 

To be assessed as ‘competent’, you must complete the Final Activity Book individually and be assessed as satisfactorily meeting all requirements of the Units of Competency associated with this stream. You may use the input from any group activities, however the written responses must be your own work. 

Electronic copies of the Final Activity Book are available if you wish to type up your answers.
