    Working off the philosophy of the book/concept, “Who Moved My Cheese?”, Tammy Rimes MPA will take this concept and relate it to public procurement.  Whether it’s reworking existing policies, allowing new processes to accommodate social distancing and shifts in daily operations, it is time to reflect on how we conducted procurement processes in the past and what is possible for the future. While COVID19 has been a terrible event, it has pushed teams to becoming more creative and develop new ways to be strategic while taking care of daily business. . Featuring a panel of procurement professionals to share their insights and changes that were implemented within their own operations including moving to a virtual office, handling COVID in addition to protests and weather events, managing morale and team activities, addressing upcoming budget constraints and cutbacks, all while keeping operations running smoothly. After 2020, procurement life will never be the same again.

    1.  Discover policy and procedure updates to help with a virtual office
    2.  Find ways to drive down costs due to budget impacts
    3.  Learn the procurement paradigm shifts for the future
    4.  Side by side pros and cons for making changes across the organization
    5.  Shared case studies/success stories from other agencies
