New research indicates that state and local procurement offices are grappling with an array of important issues. A nationwide Future of Procurement survey conducted by the Center for Digital Government found that respondents need procurement technology that is easier to use, can automate common workflows, and can provide better insights on critical factors like supplier performance. The survey also tracked growing attention on supplier diversity and sustainability, as well as continuing supply chain disruptions.
On Feb. 8, Government Technology will host a live webcast to break down key survey findings and explore effective approaches for addressing procurement system modernization. Procurement experts from San Diego County Government, the Center for Digital Government, and Ivalua will cover:
- How key trends are impacting today’s procurement organizations, including efforts to attract contractors that are more diverse and environmentally conscious
- How sophisticated capabilities such as analytics and workflow automation can help jurisdictions address purchasing pain points
- How an ecosystem approach to modernization can drive results while providing flexibility and reducing risk
