3:00pm - 4:00pm


In 2020, effectively deploying law enforcement budget is more important than ever before. Whether you’re purchasing equipment for security, protection, combat, or emergency response, ensuring that you’re stewarding taxpayer dollars smartly and compliantly through best-value decisions needs to be a top priority—and that begins with starting every competitive bid on the right foot.

A connected procurement request intake process enables procurement to structure the competitive process in a way that facilitates creative approaches to solving problems and bringing in new vendors. Connected intake is more than just a form or set of questions; it creates a rewarding experience for your entire agency to work with procurement, fosters collaboration, and generates outcomes that benefit your procurement team, your agency, and the citizens you serve.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How laying a connected procurement intake process improves efficiency, reduces errors, and ensures best-value decisions
  • How digital tools can make it easy to bring requests to procurement at the start of every project
  • How a collaborative intake process can open up the “black box” of procurement and provide better visibility into request statuses, upcoming initiatives, and forecasted spend.
