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.

As an historian of education, I have been a regular consumer of education statistics from the U.S. Department of Education. For many years, I kept the Department’s telephone number in my address book and computer directory. It did not take long to discover there was one person to whom I should address all my queries: Vance Grant. In my many telephone calls for information, I discovered he is the man who knows what data and statistics have been gathered over the years by the Department of Education. No matter how exotic my question, Dr. Grant could always tell me, without delay, whether the information existed; usually, he produced it himself. When I asked a statistical question, I could often hear the whir of an adding machine in the background, even after the advent of the electronic calculator.
