Event Description

Purchasing is a key function in government finance. Purchasing’s role is to help departments deliver cost savings through strategic procurement decisions and protect an entity’s risk through understanding spending patterns and developing templates to ensure consistency in use of general terms and conditions. This session will provide an overview of strategic procurement tools to identify the most effective and appropriate method; a discussion on spend analysis to capture maverick spend; and samples of templates that will assist in developing bids, RFPs, contract modifications, and agreements.

Learning Objectives:  Participants completing this session will be able to:

  • Gain a basic understanding of key strategic procurement tools and the ability to discern how to select the best procurement method;
  • Learn the benefit of developing a spend analysis to understand your entities spend;
  • Understand the advantages of establishing standard templates to ensure consistency in use of general terms and conditions, purchase order terms and conditions, and contract templates; and
  • Gain knowledge of key purchasing statutes and best practices.
