Lunchtime Learning: IT Purchasing - Beyond the Basics

Did you know that Penn spends over $100 million each year with nearly 700 IT vendors that supply software, hardware, and services to Penn? Join us for this Lunch and Learn session for an update from Purchasing Services on a new toolbox being made available for IT users, including RFP and contract templates, evaluation scorecards, and a variety of tools that can be used to drive more value and minimize risk with your technology purchases. Penn’s online RFP portal, SmartSource, will be demonstrated and include a live reverse auction event. We will be sharing tips and tricks when negotiating with vendors, including an overview of the initiatives and negotiation tactics used to generate nearly $2M in savings with IT clients this year to date.

To reserve your seat for this session, please register using Knowledge Link. You are welcome to bring your lunch to this session.
