K-12 procurement teams and their internal stakeholders are both invested in getting the right materials and services to classrooms — but sometimes it seems that that’s all they can agree on! Ensuring alignment between procurement teams and the purchasing needs in the classroom is a common challenge.
With limited resources to serve the procurement needs of stakeholders across the district while navigating a maze of regulations, procurement teams have a lot to manage. Making this more difficult, most teams are doing it all over paper, email, and spreadsheets, which presents further challenges to effective collaboration.
In this webinar, we’re focused on how procurement teams and their stakeholders can work better together. Drawing on the real-life experiences of K-12 procurement leaders, we’ll investigate how the right tools and processes can help teams overcome common obstacles to achieve productive collaboration, in order to ensure purchases are aligned with student need.
