Climbing the Procurement Pathway: Taking the Road Less Traveled 
The Straight and Narrow Path, Where No Corners Can Be Cut!
 
November 8, 2:00pm EST

 

Procurement professionals often can help drive savings or initiate new ideas that can ultimately support their organizational goals.  However, part of that process is convincing other decision makers or leaders to allow procurement to move forward toward the next steps.  How effective are you in educating your city council, board or other non-procurement leaders on any new idea, such as cooperative procurement? What about the efforts in updating your legislative policies or procurement manual with the latest language?  Discover how to raise your own political and communication acumen by hearing from your peers and industry leaders.  Whether it’s using good communication techniques, case studies, current data and knowledge of best practices, there are ways to bring about beneficial changes in your organization.  Be that one who can bring it all the way down the path to success!

Guest Panelists: Phillip Ellison, Spring Independent School District, TX; April Pay, Placer County, CA, Jenti Vandertuig, County of Santa Clara, CA and Ed Quedens, City of Mesa, AZ


Strategic is as Strategic does: Walking the Walk!
 
January 17, 2:00pm EST

 

Most agencies “piggyback” on cooperative or other government contracts for some of their contracting needs. But does your agency have a cooperative strategy? Have you calculated the percentage of spend going through cooperatives?  Have you reviewed the potential of bundling purchases to drive savings? Is there a component to incorporate small, MBE or WBE business participation? Do you already have emergency contracts in place? Using cooperatives is an option, but do you have a real plan? By means of the “Road Map to a Cooperative Procurement Strategy,” gain insight from procurement leaders on how a good strategy works for their agency.

 

Guests Panelists: Joan Morange, Retired from County of DuPage, Illinois; Kelly Loll, Florida International University, FL; Eric J. Dickey, CPPB, University of North Florida
