Agenda Overview:

Across Canada, efforts have been underway to modernize public procurement. The COVID-19 outbreak has either fast-tracked or disrupted many of these initiatives.

With urgent demands for supplies and services coming up against a need to be as cost-efficient as possible, one certainty remains: it is essential for government at all levels to be as solid on procurement fundamentals as possible. The ability to grow, modernize and transform depends on that foundation. How can the procurement function in the public sector rapidly adapt to the changes that are needed and improve the speed to market during these unprecedented times?

Join us at our Procurement Modernization Virtual Event and hear the best procurement strategies from across the Canadian public sector.
