A primary resource is our procurement library – which includes the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s resources together with resources available through Interloan (network of New Zealand Libraries). Here, procurers in the New Zealand public sector can gain access to materials such as textbooks, journals and CIPS study guides.
What resources are available?
You can find a list of useful training and education resources that we’ve pulled together for procurers in the Procurement Library [206 KB PDF].
If you’d like to see anything added, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I take out a resource?
Many public and some private sector organisations are members of the Interlibrary loan service. If you wish to borrow a resource, ask your organisation’s library to request it for you. Or if you are a student your university or polytechnic library can help.
If you don’t have access to a library through work or study, an Interloan can be made on your behalf by your public library (note: there may be a small service charge).
Look for more information on Interlibrary loans on your public library website.
CIPS study resources
CIPS study resources (reference texts, passnotes and course books) can be borrowed from the Procurement Academy or through the Ministry's Interlibrary loan service. To borrow a CIPS course book you can contact email@example.com in the first instance.

- Maximum loan period – one month (subject to demand and availability)
