1 Meeting the Challenges of World-Class Procurement (aka the Procurement Barriers Work Group Whitepaper) Richard Pennington

2 The Procurement Barriers Work Group Ron Bell (VA)Jean Clark (AZ) Deb Damore (VT)Brenda Derge (WI) Greg Hopkins (OR)Thirza Kennedy (CO) Kay Kishline (Honorary, CO)Gary Lambert (MA) Denise Lea (LA)Mark Lutte (ME) Keith McCook (SC)Servando Patlan (WA) Richard Pennington (Life, CO)Michael Wenzel (ME) Chris Record (AMR)

3 The Work Group Charter Develop a short whitepaper for senior state executives and/or legislators that identifies barriers to effective state procurement and that could be used by NASPO for direct communication or by state procurement officials in conjunction with their internal advocacy efforts Accommodate various policy directions but reinforce NASPO positions on local preferences and environmentally sensitive procurement

4 Research Internet research for recent developments: 33 documents added to NASPO Library, including: – Washington Small Business Survey/Report – Arizona, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Oregon reports – Some federal procurement system reports Comments also from Mike Bliss (MI) and Dean Stotler (DE) PTAC input: San Diego, Colorado, Connecticut Assembled a master list of possible “barriers”

5 $100 Lobbying Campaign (Multi-vote) Used to set priorities $100 mock lobbying budget for each work group member to spend anyway they desired Helped identify priorities from over 25 ideas about “barriers” to effective procurement The top priorities were integrated into the whitepaper that was circulated for comments/revisions Title change of whitepaper to “challenge” focus

6 Whitepaper Conclusions Organized by common procurement objectives, e.g. Model Procurement Code Simplify, Clarify, and Modernize – Complexity the number one barrier Washington surveyed over 2,500 of vendor community PTACs agreed: complexity is key barrier – Support an Executive-Level Central Procurement Authority – Preserve Discretion of the CPO

7 Conclusions (Cont’d) Leverage Competition (and Cooperation) to Acquire Goods and Services – Paper showcased NASPO/WSCA coops – Examples: Oregon lodging, Ohio education reform, Maine computer notebooks coops – CPO network available through NASPO Increase Public Confidence in Public Procurement – Adequate training resources are key, e.g. Oregon and Virginia – Idaho’s PIPS and Oregon Ts and Cs initiative – National collaborations, e.g. NASCIO

8 Conclusions (Cont’d) Promote a System of Integrity – Sufficient resources for oversight, no matter what policy choices are made – E.g., business size validation, environmental purchasing complexity, local preference definitions – Limited efficacy of self-policing through protests Engage your Senior Procurement Official early! – Adapting to changing conditions – Avoiding unintended consequences
