Procurement on a Mission
Billions of dollars flow through the procurement functions of state and local governments and where those dollars go and how they are used can have significant impact on communities and industries. Governments have long used purchasing requirements to help achieve environmental, social, and community goals. Attend this session to learn about best practices in promoting diversity, sustainability, and community interests through procurement and how to align procurement policies with larger organizational initiatives to help build thriving communities.
