    In 2020, effectively deploying public sector budget is more important than ever before. With so many stakeholders to report to, ensuring that you’re stewarding taxpayer dollars effectively and compliantly through best-value decisions needs to be a top priority—but your current project planning process may, inadvertently, be putting that at risk.
    Starting your projects on the right foot means ensuring your procurement team’s intake process is connected to the people, processes, and peers that will drive best-value awards. A connected intake process is more than just a form or a set of questions; it enables procurement to structure the competitive process in a way that facilitates creative approaches to solving problems and bringing in new vendors, ultimately driving better outcomes that benefit your procurement team, your organization, and the constituents you serve.


     After completing this online training session, learners will be able to:
    1. Spot common intake mistakes, and why a connected and collaborative intake process is better
    2. Identify how a collaborative intake process can open up the "black box" of procurement and provide better visibility into request statuses, upcoming initiatives, and forecasted spend.
    3. Discover how implementing a connected procurement intake process improves efficiency, reduces errors, and ensures best-value decisions
    4. Learn how digital tools can make it easy to bring requests to procurement at the start of every project
