Key Competencies for Public Procurement

In 2016, the Volcker Alliance examined the state of the public workforce responsible for $2 trillion in procurement spending each year. The Alliance proposed a model of the essential skills and competencies required for public procurement that could be applicable at all levels of government.

There is no better time than this 40th anniversary to secure the workforce of the future.
