Delivering simpler, more accessible, and cost-efficient procurement systems for the US public sector
Around the US, efforts have been underway to modernize the public procurement process. The COVID-19 outbreak has either fast-tracked, or directly 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. What has been learned from recent history as states and localities had to vie for limited stock of PPE and how are those lessons being applied to both pandemic and emergency preparedness, as well as the broader procurement process? The ability to grow, modernize, and transform in the long run 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?
