The benefits of Reverse Auctions seem almost too good to be true. Do they truly deliver? Are they really the best solution for you and your agency’s purchasing needs?
In this action-packed session, two leading industry minds will address and explore the ins, outs, pros and potential cons of reverse auctions and other possible procurement vehicles.
Attendees will listen, learn and decide whether Reverse Auctions are the most efficient and effective way to get the biggest bang out of procurement dollars—ultimately returning to the workplace ready and able to maximize purchasing power.
Note: This FedBid Fuel event will be held online only.
Understanding the significance of strategic sourcing to a federal agency’s mission and procurement objectives is critical information for any current or emerging acquisition leader. This past December, the White House propelled this concept to the forefront—issuing Memorandum M-13-02, Improving Acquisitions through Strategic Sourcing, designed to build on the Administration’s prior savings successes and “ensure that all agencies manage their acquisitions effectively and that, wherever possible, agencies join together to negotiate the best deal for the taxpayer.”
FedBid, RAP-C and NCMA, cordially invite you to our first collaborated event, designed to deliver a full 360 overview of strategic sourcing, from the decision-makers to frontline contracting officers making strategic sourcing a reality.
Join top federal government members of the Strategic Sourcing community Leadership Council (SSLC) for an executive panel discussion, as they share their experiences, successes and best practices to fuel your efforts to achieve your agency’s strategic sourcing goals.
This dynamic and interactive event will include a panel discussion headlined by SSLC members Michael Smith, Director of the Strategic Sourcing Program Office, DHS and Elliott Branch, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Acquisition & Procurement). The event will also include a presentation on strategic sourcing experiences conducted by Vijaya (VJ) Murthy, Contracting Officer, Strategic Sourcing Acquisition Division, NOAA.
Attendees will receive two CPE’s for attendance. This is a free event and open to the entire acquisition community. To RSVP, please visit http://rapcomm.org/event/strategic-sourcing-360-from-decision-makers-to-the-frontline/
