A fight over the funding for the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, has resulted in a government shutdown that started last night. The registration for what is intended to be universal health care for American citizens begins Oct. 1, and House Republicans have currently stopped congressional activities in an attempt to force Democrats to compromise on the funding for the bill. The shutdown marks the first of its kind in 17 years, with almost 800,000 government employees on unpaid leave. Why did this happen?

The Government Procurement Summit 2021

November 24-26, 2021 | Australia

Australia’s business recovery is marked by procurement reforms across the three tiers of government. This is led by embracing “digital marketplaces,” opening opportunities for small-to-medium enterprises and ensuring the sourcing of goods and services are transparent, accountable, and commercially-savvy. The overall accountability underscores governments’ annual spending that is capped at more than A$64 billion. On the technology front, the public sector IT spending is forecast to exceed A$13 billion this financial year, representing a substantial increase from the previous year. Governments’ appetite for procurement innovation and delivering “bang for the buck” comes under the spotlight at the  4th Annual Australian Gov Procurement Summit . The information-packed agenda is tailored for professionals that seek to optimise procurement innovation, together with flexibility for contract negotiation, and staying agile, nimble, and open to change.
