Lembaga Kebijakan Pengadaan Barang/Jasa Pemerintah (LKPP) Kepala SubDitrektorat Pengelolaan dan Pembinaan LPSE
"Training held by Husin Intelligence Group is very important for the government to get a different perspective, especially international procurement best practice. If we look from the teacher or facilitator who presented, Mr. Graw, able to provide a different perspective between the private and government because he had done both. There is a combining point between regulations in LKPP and what the private sector does. Back to the office I will give new ideas that simple government procurement is not wrong. Negotiation can be done in simple procurement, but in government procurement everyone avoided the negotiation part. In this 3 days I learned a lot of new perspectives, the materials are too much for 3 days course. From what I see only myself is from government, the presented knowledge not only in private but also government sectors, would be best if Husin Intelligence Group invite more government participants."
