Procurement readiness

In the 2015-17 biennium, the Procurement Readiness team formed a workgroup with state procurement professionals from fifteen agencies. The workgroup began the work to identify opportunities to standardize data and procurement processes statewide to prepare for new technology implementations.

The project scoping team completed the project charter in January 2017.

In the 2017-19 biennium, the team will continue readiness activities, identifying the essential standard data and business processes that a statewide procurement system would need to collect the correct and accurate data to provide data transparency, required for reporting and statewide decision making.  Agreement of common expectations will prepare the state for the process of defining business requirements for an enterprise procurement system.

Project goals include:

  • Identify Common Procurement Processes
  • Identify Common Procurement Data
  • Identify Enterprise Procurement Services
  • Prepare for establishing Business Requirements for an Enterprise Procurement System
