I am so grateful to the hundreds of individuals who have personally offered me their support and who have helped me in so many incredible ways. To my family, friends and colleagues in Tucson and throughout Arizona, thank you for everything. Couldn't have done this without you! It is going to be an exciting year and I look forward to the journey. And I challenge you to consider giving back to your profession. There are so many ways to “Get Connected� and contribute something valuable to the Institute and the profession. You have something valuable to offer and I encourage you to find a way to share that with others!

PROGRAM AT-A-GLANCE

New and exciting this year is the answer to the question "Is there an app for that?" The answer....YES! Our new Forum app is sure to be a valuable tool for you this year as you maneuver a busy schedule, strive to connect to hundreds of attendees and explore hundreds of booths at our Products Exposition. So Let's Connect at Forum by snapping and sharing photos on Instagram (using the hashtag #NIGPForum2013), follow us on Twitter @OfficialNIGP, become the Mayor of NIGP Forum 2013 on Foursquare (Event Name: NIGP Forum 2013) and share your experiences by mentioning #NIGPForum2013 through any social media outlet. After Forum, you can check out Flickr (www.flickr.com/NIGPinstitute) and YouTube (www.youtube.com/NIGP1). So Let's Connect!

It is a tremendous honor and privilege to serve as your 2013-2104 NIGP President. I can think of no better way to begin my term than to get connected with all of you in Orlando for the 68th Annual NIGP Forum & Products Exposition. Orlando is an incredible city with so much to offer. Our fantastic NIGP team has once again developed an amazing Forum experience filled with inspiring plenary speakers, invigorating presentations, wonderful networking opportunities and a jam-packed Products Exposition. Our theme this year, Connecting Procurement Communities, challenges all of us to maximize our existing procurement connections but, more importantly, build new connections. Forum is an opportunity for all our procurement communities to learn from and share with one another, as we strive to promote, develop and support the public procurement profession.

Coding for Construction Projects

Room: Crystal NPQ

FLOOR PLANS

Construction projects are never simple. If you have done one, you have already learned a great deal. If you are just beginning, it is important to find ways that will enable standardization for the next time project. The Code can make a difference. The City of Austin uses the Code and shares how it made a difference for them. Take the time to consider how the Code canfit into your next “big deal”.

PROGRAM AT-A-GLANCE

Perhaps nowhere else does the government fall short of hopes as when it buys big, complex products, such as weapons systems and major infrastructure projects. This analytical framework helps government managers and contract procurement personnel understand these contracts’ perils and promises to better achieve the win-win promise. The management value of this complex contracting framework is richly illustrated through an analysis of the US Coast Guard’s Deepwater project.

Room: Crystal J

MONDAY AUGUST 26

Why do IT projects become a disaster? This session exposes the reality of the IT supplier community and turns a procurement novice into an expert. After two test projects involving a state agency and a major university, the best value process used is simple, logical and minimizes the sources of risk that has plagued procurement professionals in the delivery of IT services. The new model includes the identification of the deliverable in terms of metrics, a methodology to deliver a detailed schedule, cost and plan by a high performance supplier, and the ability of the client (user). Learn the “secrets” of suppliers and how they draw the buyer/owner into the trap of collaboration and agile project management to make the buyer accountable for all problems.

Strengthening Your Negotiating Position Using Market Intelligence

Room: Crystal M

FLOOR PLANS

Public sector procurement professionals can use market intelligence to strengthen their negotiation position, especially if contracts contain price adjustment clauses. This session explores how to detect and then push back unwarranted price increases, when and how to go after outright price decreases and how to go about convincing suppliers to always ‘play fair’. Based on case studies, you learn best tactics and strategies with plenty of time for questions and debate. Presenter: Rod Sherkin, President and CEO, ProPurchaser.com, Toronto, ON The Sustainability Index – A New Tool for Public Procurement

Room: Canary 2 PROGRAM AT-A-GLANCE FRI. & SAT. AUGUST 23-24

A fundamental role of government is to positively impact our social, economic and environmental condition. In that context, Sustainable Procurement practices have become ever more important to influence higher standards, increase resource efficiency and reduce costs in the supply chain. But how do you measure a supplier’s sustainability credentials and work with your supply base to proactively raise standards? While there are some reference sources to help agencies gauge the overall sustainability impact of suppliers, there are few – if any – tools to help! Learn about the Sustainability Index, an emerging on-line resource that will give public agencies a credible assessment and rating of their suppliers across all three dimensions of sustainability. Presenters: Sajid Ghani, PRG-X, Chelmsford, Essex, UK; Chip Reid, Vice President, Client Services, PRG-X USA, Inc., Atlanta, GA; Ed Schwerin, Professor, Florida Atlantic University, Davie, FL Using Internet Research to Build Better Bids & RFPs

Room: Crystal G

SUNDAY AUGUST 25

What you know about the market can help you build better bids and RFPs along with improving negotiated agreements, controlling costs and enhancing project success. Using all the available resources on the Internet, paying attention to observational data obtained through market research, and with a small investment of time, you can gather meaningful and useful information plus raise the bar on the level of support you provide to your client departments. When you find information that ensures more effective and focused solicitations and agreements you can keep your agency on the leading edge of what’s current and available. It’s all right there; you just need to know where to look.

TUESDAY AUGUST 27

The status of women in public procurement is drawing more attention these days. Do they receive equal pay for equal work? Do they pay a higher “social cost” for their career success? Do they face the same glass ceiling than other employees in the public sector? Does unionization affect the status of women in public procurement? This workshop is based on six studies conducted recently on the status of women in public procurement.

The Ever Changing Role of the Procurement Professional

Room: Crystal G

A common misconception assumes that the public procurement specialist only enforces the rules. Recent research, however, suggests that this may not be the reality. We interviewed your peers and learned that a number of diverse roles fill your day. There is a great richness and diversity within those roles assumed by public procurement specialists that certainly don’t get their fair share of attention. Take the time to rethink just what it is you do and what value you bring to the process. You’ll be amazed.

Five Pillars of a Profession: An Aspirational Model for a Sustainable Procurement Profession

Room: Crystal NPQ

TUESDAY AUGUST 27

The procurement profession is widely known to its members, but not so widely known outside. Why? This session takes a different look at the professionalization of procurement in these early years of the 21st Century. The result is an aspirational model for professional procurement and supply management. It has been constructed around five key elements: technical attributes, functional characteristics, internal consistency, external regulation and social recognition. This model should lead to wider recognition of the procurement profession, a goal that has eluded procurement thus far. This might be a new road to professional status.

TUESDAY AUGUST 27

Can you get the best quality for the lowest cost? Is it possible to decrease project cost and increase quality and performance at the same time? In the industry, there is a prevalent idea that service providers with more expertise have higher prices. Although 20 years of project documentation shows the opposite, the more skilled vendor always delivers the better value for a lower cost through improved risk management. The best value approach requires that the expert suppliers provide a detailed schedule, including the identification of risk that the supplier does not control and how the risk can be minimized. Throughout the project, experts create transparency by tracking deviations, motivating all participants in the delivery of the service to be accountable. Increase your company’s value by changing from a “buyer’s viewpoint” to a “supply chain” approach. The payoff is less risk, less stress, and higher performance.

Speaking up when we are frustrated is hard and as a result, most of us don’t. Instead, we either tell other people (aka gossip) or we say nothing and relationships become tense and explode. You can say anything to anyone and have it be easy. You just need to lay the groundwork to do so, and most of us don’t. In Shari’s session learn these key points: how to establish trust in any relationship, laying the foundation to be able to address issues when they arise; how to set expectations with coworkers, direct supervisors and clients, paving the way to successful long term relationships; determining what’s important to your manager, co-workers and clients, making it more likely that you give them what they need; how to tell others what you need so your needs are met; and how to create a regular practice of asking for feedback so you know how you are perceived by others.

How well do you negotiate? It’s something we do every day and don’t even realize we’re doing it. Many public procurement professionals believe they are limited in how much they can negotiate; however: (1) we all negotiate daily more than we think, and (2) it is important to understand the negotiating tools that others use when they deliberate with us. Think of “negotiating” as the Deep Dive process two or more people go through in order to reach an agreement. In Workshops Rock! this presentation, international speaker David Rabiner covers the most important strategies and tools relating to negotiating and basic influence - how people move others.

Fraud doesn’t just happen; it takes not only the character of the person, but an opportunity, or what can be called “a hole in the system”. Lack of solid internal controls opens the system up to opportunities for fraud. Purchasing managers and employees alike need to be committed to consistent established controls to protect the agency. We’ll examine the tenets of good internal controls that will not only provide for excellent audit trails, but will also minimize opportunities for fraud.
