Virtually from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM ET
Join Deloitte Canada and IPAC as they open a dialogue with Canadian Public Sector leaders focused on the evolution of ‘procuring for value’.
Governments across Canada are increasingly focused on achieving outcomes and delivering value through their procurement and partnering decisions, while continuing to respect fair, open, and transparent procurement processes. How can you explore innovative contracting mechanisms and new possibilities to leverage procurement data and insights?
This virtual session is intended to engage public service professionals in a spirited conversation around the future state of procuring for value and the innovation required to mobilize. We will invite participants to discuss what is possible for the “next normal” within government procurement.
We are delighted to invite you to attend this free seminar to learn more and participate in the dialogue.
Our guest speakers will:
- provide their insights on procuring for value and the next evolution of procurement,
- provide reflections on current trends (e.g., digital government, data and artificial intelligence, social procurement), and
- discuss opportunities to challenge thinking around procuring for outcomes.
