Best of #SNIC19: Procurement Woes: A Case Study

Register for SNA's Webinar Wednesdays E-Learning Events

2:00 pm ET on Wednesday, May 15, 2019

It’s bid opening day! Countless hours have been invested in spec’ing items, coordinating alternates, answering questions and overall stressing. Then the unthinkable happens. Directors leading a brand-new school nutrition buying group share hard lessons learned in the process of issuing their first bid. As presented at SNIC 2019, come join us to hear what they did right, what they’ll improve next time and how the changing world of procurement continues to affect how we will all do business in the future.

Successful completion of the webinar and quiz is awarded 1 SNA CEU, or 1 CPEU for RDs/DTRs.
