Effective Communication between State Procurement and Industry

Effective Communication between State Procurement and Industry

This paper will explore how procurement officials can understand the issues involved with vendor communication and address them in a way that allows them to use one-on-one exchanges in a manner consistent with the obvious necessity for transparency and integrity.

The purpose of this research is to help procurement officials and state policy makers develop state-vendor communication guidelines or policies in their respective states. While this paper will not recommend a particular approach to one-on-one state-vendor communications, general observations and a framework for analysis are included.
