Let's Explore Some Unexpected Benefits of Good Purchasing Practices

Nonprofits and charities often consider improving their purchasing processes because of 'have to'; driven perhaps by the need to satisfy the board, donors, or funders for sound spending management. Others are motivated to find the best savings or comply with regulatory requirements such as the Broader Public Sector Procurement Guidelines.

However, there are many other, often hidden benefits that might make you want to address how your organization selects suppliers and manages spending.

Join David Rourke of RTPS, our partner in the ONN Purchasing Program, to learn about some of the less obvious – but just as impactful - reasons to consider purchasing improvement in your organization.

During this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How to identify and prioritize “hidden” improvement opportunities
  • How to plan and manage improvement projects to capture all available benefits
  • How to maximize results while adhering to good governance and best practice procedures
  • How to track and capture the “ripple effects” of good purchasing practices
