Delivering a simpler, more accessible, and cost-efficient public procurement system.
Procurement is a key strategic process for the public sector to satisfy its constituents by delivering the right products and services on time. Technology is at the core of implementing a successful procurement process. The objective of procurement transformation is to perform tasks and processes more efficiently using technology to deliver benefits seamlessly, without impacting its current operation. Without a robust procurement platform, it can be difficult for agencies to scale their procurement processes or address the challenges of transparency.
Public Sector Network invites you to join the conversation at our virtual event: Government Procurement Transformation Insights. We will bring together thought leaders as they examine such topics as Artificial Intelligence (AI), a supplier diversity program, efficiencies through a client service model, procurement and technology modernization, and technology/transparency in government contracting.

Promoting Procurement Efficiencies through a Client Service Model
Public procurement professionals are highly engaged in the intricacies of the procurement process. When procurement leaders seek to improve the efficiency of the procurement operations, the first inclination is to make changes to the procurement process. Reframing how we conduct acquisitions through a client services model provides a solution to increased efficiency by creating an individualized client-centric procurement experience. By assuming the role of business advisor, public procurement professionals can proactively engage clients and vendors to obtain a meeting of the minds between industry and the public sector, while also improving service delivery.

Technology and Transparency in Government Contracting
The public sector purchasing departments are adapting to fundamental changes in how RFPs are designed and distributed, as well as how government contracts are awarded. The arrival of new technologies to streamline the RFP process, make it easier for contractors to find and bid on opportunities, have had a positive impact on the procurement process.
Technology improvements will continue to play important roles in public sector contracting. As buying organizations and vendors increasingly adopt the technologies that disrupt conventional procurement processes, so too will the expectation of transparency become more prevalent at every step of government contracting
