Back to business: Fast and focused

As the US continues to re-open, public procurement teams are returning to the office, resuming on-hold projects, and setting their sights on more long-term goals than just the here-and-now of emergency procurements. Although different states are in different stages of re-opening, across the board, it feels like things are going “back to normal”—the reality is, however, that there has been a drastic shift not only in the priorities of procurement teams across the country, but in how your agency views procurement’s role in building for the future.

Join us as we walk you through the 2021 Bonfire State of Public Sourcing report, which explores what’s on every procurement team’s minds these days—what are procurement priorities in a post-COVID world, and how can I learn from the experience of my peers while navigating these new priorities?

  • How did we get here?
  • Public procurement in 2021: What is happening, what is here to stay, where do we see changes?
  • What does the future look like for public procurement?
