Procurement Services Forums

Procurement Services forums will provide the UW Academy updates on department, university, state, and federal purchasing policies, procedures, and requirements. Forums will also provide tools and resources accompanying these changes to ensure that the UW Academy has the needed tools and knowledge to adapt to these new changes and requirements as they arise.

Content for forums will be influenced and selected based on UW Academy feedback and requests in addition to procurement-related changes.

Forums are held twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring, and are intended for all interested in staying up to date with our current Procurement work and procedures.

Upcoming Forums:

May 2019
