Lance Jay, Chief Procurement Officer at the City and County of Denver in Colorado, says local governments are facing market and workforce challenges in COVID-19. "Goods and services are not readily available and as a city we are seeing price inflation as demand across the globe far exceeds the supply."
Jay says cooperative contracts, like those offered through OMNIA Partners, have helped the Denver government meet its sourcing needs in these challenging times. "Contracts like these allow us as a city to identify and gather data on our agencies' spend. This enabled us to gain visibility and deeper understanding into how they operate day in and day out, resulting in decreased procurement costs, improved efficiencies and the ability to forecast their needs."
