The Australian Association of Procurement and Contract Management is an Australian organisation that provides support and recognition for Australian procurement professionals working in Government, Local Government and private enterprise.

At AAPCM, we are all about actively promoting the professionalisation of Procurement and Contract Management in Australia.

AAPCM supports and encourages the uptake of AQF qualifications in procurement. AAPCM recognises for membership purposes the AQF qualifications issued by all Australian Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). Some RTOs offer discounts to AAPCM members for vocational education qualifications and professional development programs.

AAPCM professional certification provides skills recognition and status to members and confidence to employers.
