RFPSOLUTIONS Congratulations CIPMM on it's 25th Year!
The Big 25!! 

The time has come once again for the annual CIPMM National Workshop, which will be held on May 5th - 8th, 2014 at the Ottawa Convention Centre.

This year CIPMM is celebrating it's 25th Anniversary and RFPSOLUTIONS is excited to help them celebrate at the Workshop next week!

RFPS will be set-up in the trade show area on May 7th and 8th, and we look forward to talking procurement with the participants of this important event.

The theme of the Workshop will be "Reflections on the Past - Directions for the Future", and the CIPMM Organizing Committee will no doubt present an event that will be both interesting and professionally enriching.

to celebrate CIPMM's Big 25, RFPS is inviting visitors to our booth in the Trade Show area tostep right up and play The Big 25 and win a donation for the Heart and Stroke Foundation!

In our next RFPUpdate we'll show how close we came to our donation goal with the Heart & Stroke Donation Meter. Our goal is $2-$5 for everyone at CIPMM, and you can help us reach it.

So please stop by our CIPMM booth on May 7th and 8th and see the difference 25 cents can make in the fight against Heart Disease and Stroke!

RFPS Article: What is Procurement
At the conclusion of International Public Procurement Conference - IPPC5 in 2012, a challenge was set by RFPS' Jonathan Mak to departing participants to define "procurement." There does not seem to be a single, obvious answer, with definitions perhaps differing with the respondent and their relation to the topic. Is a single off-the-shelf purchase "procurement"? What if it is part of an overall strategy? Is "procurement" achieving contracts, outcomes, or something else? The answers to these questions, and others, are extremely important to those affected by the discipline. Author Jonathan Mak explores this broader topic of the nature of "procurement," in general and in terms of "public procurement," in order to frame the discourse on procurement, and to examine what it may mean for those in and around the field.
