View brochure here: 6th Annual New Procurement: Critical Advances from Process to Practice

For any organization, purchasing goods and services ranks at the top of the “must-do-right” list. When done well, procurement processes will drive innovative solutions and achieve best value. Done poorly, supply chains are interrupted, costly litigation looms, and suppliers lose confidence in the organization’s ability or willingness to purchase goods and services in an open, fair and transparent manner. Numerous court decisions provide a rich body of evidence detailing how good procurements can go badly, and the consequences when they do.

Why attend:

  • Leading procurement experts will demonstrate the "how and why" of the shifting procurement landscape, and help you navigate around the obstacles that can push the purchasing process off course.
  • They will also showcase new and innovative procurement methods, and take you through an advanced case study.
  • This course is aimed at anyone interested in cutting-edge best practices in Public Procurement - procurement professionals, government officials, in-house counsel, and contract or project managers.
