NCMA's neutral forum and dynamic community can drive and support the evolution of policies, practices, and priorities. In this third presentation in the webinar series you will hear from the Federal Chief Sustainability Officer and others to collaborate on and refine a vision of the optimal state of climate change and sustainability from the acquisition and contract management perspective. This event precedes the expected launch of the NCMA Sustainable Procurement Community of Practice
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.
