The pandemic put a spotlight on the importance of public procurement.  Despite outdated processes, and a lack of funds and resources,  in a time of crisis, you delivered.  Looking back on lessons learned, we now have the opportunity to shape tomorrow.  While the pandemic continues to impact business, Money from the American Rescue Plan is beginning to roll out, and Billions in CARES funding is still available until December. Now is the ultimate time for every government to build resiliency and modernize the core foundational pillars of talent, process, technology and culture, in order to build efficient, agile, and diversified procurement functions. But where do you begin?

2.  Gain insight on how to become a Procurement Change Agent
3.  Provide information on building a case for change: Who needs to be involved, how to work cross functionally, and responding to roadblocks
4.  Learn how to optimize for tomorrow by reducing cycle time and risk, and creating value
