In our fast-paced procurement world driven by customer demands, these sessions will offer real solutions and approaches to move from a reactive stance to a more proactive approach.

The National Cooperative Procurement Partners (NCPP) Association is leading the way in elevating the discussion, advocacy and educational content on cooperative procurement. Working collaboratively to bring all the “partners” in procurement together – cooperatives, strategic suppliers, affiliated organizations and public procurement professionals – its goal is to produce meaningful educational tools to support public procurement agencies and become the “go to” resource for cooperative procurement.

Climbing the Procurement Pathway: Taking the Road Less Traveled 
Strategic is as Strategic does: Walking the Walk!
January 17, 2:00pm EST


Most agencies “piggyback” on cooperative or other government contracts for some of their contracting needs. But does your agency have a cooperative strategy? Have you calculated the percentage of spend going through cooperatives?  Have you reviewed the potential of bundling purchases to drive savings? Is there a component to incorporate small, MBE or WBE business participation? Do you already have emergency contracts in place? Using cooperatives is an option, but do you have a real plan? By means of the “Road Map to a Cooperative Procurement Strategy,” gain insight from procurement leaders on how a good strategy works for their agency.


Guests Panelists: Kelly Loll, Florida International University, FL; Eric J. Dickey, CPPB, University of North Florida, Rick Gay, Houston Independent School District and Marcheta Gillespie, Former Purchasing Manager for City of Tucson, and Procurement Consultant
