3 Procurement Policy-Making What do you want? –Understand trade-offs Make BOTH cases: – economics (makes business sense) – public policy (good government) Stakeholders: –Public (taxpayers) –Government (buyers) –Businesses (sellers)

4 Delicate Balance…. Business and Politics – neither can be ignored Focus upon best value Recognize inefficiencies of protectionism and preferences – assess true cost of programs

5 Legal Framework Clear rules Accessible, meaningful to government buyers and private firms (sellers) Articulate aspirations (e.g., open competition) Evolution – work is never done

6 Transparency Must be pervasive -- Cradle to grave – show money wisely spent! Issue: much larger than procurement Constant vigilance required Corruption suppression – key to maintaining credibility Encourage external oversight

7 Decentralization Invest in uniformity Training, retention, and cross-fertilization of personnel Communication!

8 Capacity Building Information = power –share ideas; enlist experts; borrow best practices; visit other states; exchange programs? Resources: – infrastructure includes information technology – workforce investment – never ends

9 Information Technology Short-term investment – long term gain Massive transparency dividend Workforce multiplier Uniformity enhancer Only limit = imagination!
