Educational webinar hosted by DIR.


Agile Procurement for Texas Government

Thursday, August 13, 2020 | 10:30 am - 11:30 am CDT| Register for Webinar

Learn how to streamline the overall procurement process by engaging the market while focusing on qualified vendors.  We will walk you through using progressive procurement methods and considering multiple vendor awards to help you reach your desired outcomes.  Agile procurement allows you to drive your project while ensuring your project goals are achieved in a timely manner.  

Take Away:

  • DAYS instead of MONTHS - Cut your procurement cycle time to days instead of working longer to get the results you seek.
  • NEEDS instead of WANTS - Ensure your needs solutions are met by the most qualified vendors offering the latest technology products and services
  • ADAPTIVE  instead of FIXED - Flexibility is key in the agile procurement method, rather than normal rigid procurement methods.
  • PARTNERSHIP  instead of RELATIONSHIP - Build a partnership with vendors and let them tell you what they can do for you.
