JOIN US FOR THIS IMPORTANT CLASS AS NEW TOPICS SURROUNDING THE CORONAVIRUS STIMULUS FUNDING and how it impacts purchasing procedures will be discussed. Get information on the CARES Act Paycheck Protection Program and what it means for your tribal organization.
The majority of money spent by tribes and tribal organizations, other than payroll, is on goods and services that support the mission of the organization. The opportunity for savings in this activity is significant but often overlooked. Many times you're dealing with people who are highly trained in purchasing techniques, which puts you at a disadvantage when spending the tribe's money.
This intensive class will introduce you to techniques and procedures that are guaranteed to save your organization thousands, if not millions, of dollars each year. Our expert will expose you to an array of concepts such as cost and price analysis, types of contracts, two-step sealed bidding, Brooks Act contracting and much more. We'll also fill you in on the procurement changes in OMB's new Uniform Guidance. Register for this action-packed class and start saving money for your tribe or organization immediately.
Perfect for purchasing staff, tribal administrators, board/council members, and anyone involved in the purchasing process.
