Connecting Buyers & Suppliers in Public Procurement - Get Discovered By Government Contracting Professionals

Until now, government contracting professionals did not have a single, modern platform to search for suppliers who focus on the government customer, and for suppliers it was difficult to find the necessary government opportunities for their business. Public Spend Forum has created  a solution to this challenge to benefit both -- GovShop.  Suppliers are invited to claim their free profile and update it with information that government contracting professionals are searching for. GovShop allows suppliers to customise profiles about their products and services, helping them show up on more search lists by government buyers. It’s free to use  -- so check it out here.

Improving Technology Procurement And Innovation In The Government Marketplace

In June Public Spend Forum hosted a Technology Procurement Symposium to identify barriers to government’s adoption of emerging technology and to highlight companies of all sizes that are making a difference in the civic tech space. It was held in the US but its themes are universally relevant. This post, written by Frank McNally of the Public Spend Forum team, is a comprehensive outline of those key themes and the supporting case studies in an easily digestible format.

Introducing the PSF Procurement Technology Market Intelligence Report

To help governments understand and deploy procurement technology in an accelerated manner, Public Spend Forum has created the Procurement Technology Market Intelligence Report to help answer the following questions:

1) What is procurement technology and why is it important?
2) What types of procurement technology exist and how can they help buyers?
3) How is the supplier landscape segmented?
4) Which procurement technology vendors are likely to meet my needs?

It is free to download here.
