Implementing Purchasing Policies

Ensure you have up-to-date information on policies, procedures, and contracts. You will learn about the different elements that make up a standard procurement procedure. The topic will cover those looking to improve or change a current procurement policy or program and also for those starting from scratch. You will learn about technical areas to include in structuring a new or improved procedure or program and then will follow along on a real case study involving creating procurement manual for a funded program that did not have a customized manual for them to use. You will also learn of issues that come up and how to manage changes and keep procedures current.
