NCMA Greater Philadelphia presents a seminar on the City of Philadelphia’s Best Value Procurement and electronic bidding processes on March 1, 2019 at 1515 Arch St., Phila. from 8:30am – 11:00am
The keynote speaker will be Ms. Christine Derenick-Lopez, the city’s Chief Administrative Officer. There will also be a panel discussion.
As the First Deputy in the CAO’s office, Ms. Derenick-Lopez has overseen several groundbreaking projects, including implementation of electronic signatures for professional service contracts, saving substantial time in contract conformance with the goal of the City paying vendors more quickly. She oversaw the launch of its first eProcurement system, PHL Contracts. This system, along with other modernization efforts, simplifies the contracting process and increases competition. Ms. Derenick-Lopez also spearheaded the charter change for Best Value procurement, which was approved by Philadelphia voters last year.
There will be no charge to attend. Attendees will receive CLP/CLEs. All welcome!
