Software, Desks, and Hand Sanitizer:  Adapt During the 2020-2021 School Year with Alternate Procurement

Districts are working diligently to prepare for the 2020-2021 school year, but being prepared requires more than developing a plan. In our ever-shifting world, you need to be ready to adapt as circumstances change. One or two or six weeks in, you may need additional signage, more student desks, supplementary software, plexiglass, or any number of other items.  Join our presenters as they identify key alternate procurement options that can help you adapt more effectively.  The presentation will cover non-bid options like piggybacks, CMAS, cooperative purchasing agreements, and statutory alternate options for a variety of technology items.  Attendees will leave knowing what options are available to help expedite procurement, and how to utilize those options in an effective and compliant manner.

This presentation is ideal for:  Superintendents; Associate and Assistant Superintendents; Chief Business Officials; Directors of Business Services, Facilities, Maintenance and Operations; and Business, Purchasing, Facilities, Maintenance and Operations Departments.
