What is it?

The Commercial Awareness Assessment is designed to diagnose commercial awareness across the Government of South Australia to deliver ‘value’ beyond traditional economic measures of value, such as price savings.

The five dimensions are:

  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Outcome focus
  • Market steward
  • Risk management
  • Creating public value

The Assessment is structured around five scenarios. For each scenario you will be asked four multiple-choice questions.

What is it used for?

The South Australian Government is committed to maximising the value derived from the procurement process. The aim of this assessment process is to provide a snapshot of the current level of procurement and contract management capability across the SA Government.

A group report will be prepared that summarises procurement capability and capacity across the public sector along with some analysis and options for improvement.

Your individual feedback report

This report is tailored especially for you and in it you will find suggestions and recommendations that will help you develop skills and knowledge in the areas identified for you.

Your report will be delivered one week after the conclusion of the assessment period. To receive your report you need to complete all assessments assigned to you.

REVIEW the 70:20:10 recommendations in your report, consider your development priorities and consider how you can apply the suggestions in your workplace.



As you work through the assessment you may find themes that are not directly relevant to your current role.

This is likely to happen for many people as this diagnostic considers a broad range of procurement capabilities.

It has purposefully been designed not to be role specific, instead it seeks to understand the South Australian Government procurement capability as a whole.


This is a timed assessment and at 60 minutes the assessment will close.
