And so the journey begins! The first Standards of Practice, Strategic Procurement Planning and Performance Management were released to a small focus group today for initial review. A third standard, Performance Measurement, is expected to follow sometime next week.
This is a monumental, first step toward reaching the three-year goal of 30 Standards of Practice for Public Procurement. It is simply hard to think about a bigger, or more exciting, announcement for this month!
Stay tuned, as we expect the Standards to be released for public comment in the near future.
