Sustainable U.S. Government Procurement - Future State

This is a free replay for all in the community.  Learn about the impact on contract management and acquisitions from recent Executive Orders on climate and sustainable U.S. Federal procurement. | Self-Paced Virtual Training | 1 CPE/CLP or .1 CEU | $0 member/$0 non-member

Recorded on 10/28/21


Executive Orders on climate change and sustainability join a host of previous ones and more action is expected from the Administration. In the second presentation in this webinar series, we discuss sustainable procurement concepts to help comply and expand on the impact climate change will have on acquisition and contract management professionals for procurement and sustainment. The conversation draws on the first webinar in the series to examine private sector advances in sustainability as models for the U.S. Government. 

Series: Leading organizations already have moved out on climate change and sustainable procurement efforts, and other G7 countries are ahead of the U.S. in policy and practice. The Administration has issued Executive Orders and taken actions intended to make the U.S. a leader.

To achieve the goals, our profession must learn a new vocabulary, experiment with different approaches, and evolve policies, practices, and priorities in the epic struggle for our planet's future.

What do Executive Orders and policies mean to the profession and what we do as contract management and acquisition professionals?

This series begins that journey with dialog in a neutral forum to explore what is already in place for Government buyers and sellers, agree on what is required to achieve the administration's goals, and do what our community does best: engage in deliberative dialog on how we take up the charge.
