Coming from a successful commercial and government background, Mrs Jo Bailey commenced work in the procurement team during 2008 with the Department of Education and Communities– initially coming on board as a Commercial Director and progressing to Chief Procurement Officer.

 

During 2013 Jo spearheaded the Department’s procurement accreditation project which achieved the highest cluster rating level to date under the NSW Procurement Board’s Agency Accreditation Scheme for Goods and Services. Preparation for accreditation required significant change management both within the Procurement Directorate and across the Organisation. Jo established a governance framework and awareness and capability development programs to support the accreditation and procurement reform processes within the Department.

 

During the latter part of 2013 and early 2014 the function has undergone major changes in structure, staffing and location as part of a realignment project within the Department’s corporate services portolio.  In the meantime, Jo is overseeing a current goods and services sourcing program of more than $500m.
