As government employees, procurement teams are tasked with spending public funds in the best way possible. This can be a huge challenge when you’re only getting one or two bid submissions per project.
Tapping into a group of vendors that makes up over $400 billion in economic output opens so many opportunities—not just for your organization, but for the community you serve. Creating a strategy to engage and promote participation from historically disadvantaged business enterprises (DBEs) can drive sharper competition in your RFPs while pumping money into your local economy.

What You'll Learn

So how do you open more opportunities for DBE participation?  Join Bonfire and NIGP for this webinar to learn:
1.  Steps to create a vendor engagement strategy and how to measure success
2.  The social and economic benefits of vendor diversity initiatives
3.  How to remove barriers to DBE participation
4.  How to get your colleagues and other stakeholders on board
