In My Opinion  
spicy comment on nuts and bolts
procurement issues

by Michael Asner

Government On-Line Request for Proposals offers little opportunity for small businesses

Speaking of BAFOgab
A "best and final offer" procurement practice can allow for revision of proposals

Supplier assert thyself 
Suppliers need to join together and openly discuss the procurement process with their government customers

Go to jail, go directly to jail, do not award that sole-source contract - Asner comes out strongly against the use of sole-source contracting

Come on Conrad - don't leave it all to Summit! 
Public sector procurement is big business and worthy of more news coverage

What you don't know can hurt you 
The supplier community may not fully understand public procurement and their legal rights

Is it wired? 
Among many suppliers, there is a strong perception of bending the rules

Public purchasers should go the Full Monty! 
Asner advocates a completely open and transparent procurement process

Just follow the yellow brick road 
The NASPO White Paper redefines the purchasing world

Ensuring that each competition is fair and open 
It isn't a radical change, but it is worth discussing
