Achieving Procurement Nirvana: Strategic Best Practices and Lessons Learned
Learn how to read your roadmap to success on the complex procurement journey. Many states are rounding the corner on critical projects which require complex procurements. States need a clear strategic technology roadmap to progress towards consistent, unified goals. Without a great map to your destination, you may get lost and the end result is the same type of “siloed” systems we have struggled to break down the past decade. The success of the project depends upon the strength of the contract and the basis for a good contract begins with the procurement strategy. In this session we will create a roadmap to guide your procurements in the state’s strategic direction, learn best practices for procurement strategies to implement a system on-schedule and within budget, and discover how to establish a procurement approach which fosters the ongoing vendor/ client relationship. We will close the session with lessons learned from state and industry partners.
