Balance Sheet Analysis and Financial Assessment Tools for Procurement Practitioners

This 5-day module explores the assessment techniques of a company’s balance sheet in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and prepares the participants to appropriately apply the gained competencies in the selection of financially-viable suppliers and contractors.  It also enhances the ability of participants to use economic assessment tools like cost-benefit analysis and Net Present Value in order to select the most cost-effective contractual alternative for a particular major procurement operation including the decision to go for a Public-Private Partnership arrangement.

At the end of the course the participants will be able to analyse the financial statements of companies (like balance sheet, income statement and cash flow analysis) and work-out key financial indicators (like R.O.I, R.O.E, R.O.A) and liquidity indicators (like current ratio, quick ratio and working capital/sales) in order to exercise professional judgement in the selection/prequalification of financially-viable suppliers/providers of goods, works and services. They will also be able to apply cost-benefit analysis techniques using Net Present Value calculations.
