Procurement Toolkit & 4 Webinar Series

LGMA and GFOABC have partnered to provide support for senior administrators who are responsible for managing their local government’s procurement practices. In response to the recommendations for capital and operational procurement from the Auditor General for Local Government, a Procurement Toolkit, First Edition 2016, has been created to provide practical tools such as sample bylaws, policies, forms and procedures to assist local governments in their procurement practices. The Procurement Toolkit is available with the purchase of at least one of the four webinars.
