This is the first book of its kind to address procurement in the broader public sector (BPS) – entities such as public hospitals, school boards, higher education institutions and municipalities. Authors Mark Fecenko and Jason Joseph have decades of combined procurement experience and have brought that deep knowledge to bear in this accessible, practical volume designed to help procurement professionals in their day-to-day activities.

Divided into two parts, Broader public sector procurement: A procurement professional's guide offers a comprehensive overview of the ins and outs of procurement in the broader public sector and provides practitioners with the information they need to prepare a variety of relevant procurement documents in a timely and cost-effective manner. The first part should be considered a "primer" on the common law, statutes and trade agreements that are relevant to public sector procurement, while the second part deals with the most common documents that procurement professionals are tasked with preparing.

This book also aims to help procurement professionals spot potential issues before they develop into full-blown challenges – both for them and the BPS entity that employs them. This is particularly valuable given that, on average, 50% of a company's revenue is spent on purchasing activities and one poorly executed agreement can have a significant impact on the company's overall profitability.

An indispensable resource

Written in plain and easy-to-understand language, Broader public sector procurement: A procurement professional's guide will appeal to lawyers and non-lawyers alike. In particular, it will be useful for:

  • Procurement and supply chain professionals who can rely on it for assistance in carrying out their roles without violating any policies and procedures and who must ensure that the quality, cost and value of purchased goods and services contribute to the overall success of the company
