The Procurement & Commercial Improvement Programme (PCIP) replaced the previous Procurement Capability Assessment (PCA) in 2015.
This PCIP focuses on the policies and procedures driving procurement performance and, more importantly, the results they deliver.
The PCIP assessment provides a means of measuring and reporting on the procurement and commercial capability of organisations through the provision of evidence, based around a series of set questions and other evaluation methods.
