Procurement Modernization Planning and Engagement

Parent Program

Description

In collaboration with Huron Consulting, engage UMD stakeholders and subject matter experts (SMEs) in facilitated discovery sessions. Sessions will be organized by procurement-oriented themes geared toward finding existing challenges and best practices in UMDs current procurement environment.

The roadmap and recommendations will be vetted with SMEs and AMP leadership, and the portfolio of AMP initiatives related to procurement modernization will begin planning and implementation.
