About this talk

Government procurement has significant impact upon the economy. In Canada alone, it represents $20BN annually, or 13% of annual GDP. In many other countries, its role is even more significant.

Is procurement the tool to assist us to ‘solve wicked problems’? If so, what is its potential? How has this changed with the challenges posted by COVID? Join Andrea Knight (Canada), David Sheilds (Britain) and Simon Faivel (Australia) as they examine the potential of government procurement to impact society in positive ways.
