What you do today, makes a better tomorrow.

Public procurement professionals wear a variety of hats – you’re explorers, trailblazers, and innovators focused on building a better tomorrow.  The reach and impact of what you do is breathtaking…the ability to transform cities, impact health care systems, research energy sources, construct education facilities, improve transit systems, impact security, deliver technology solutions and so much more…it’s mindboggling when you think about it.

The Power of YOU…the power of what you do…the power of public procurement…is vital to our society and securing a better future for us all. THANK YOU.

At the end of the month, the Purchasing Team had an educational and fun cookie bake-off with studio audience participation!
