Maps are helpful things; they show us the shape of the world around us and empower the reader to choose the best route.
This week, we check in with Chief of the Bureau of Goods and Services for the State of Florida, Jesse Marks. Jesse introduces Pulse Podcast listeners to the Market Analysis and Procurement Strategy or MAPS. The State of Florida’s central procurement office lead by Chief Procurement Officer Rosalyn Ingram, uses the MAPS process to inform and empower the State of Florida in acquiring best value.
Jesse breaks down how the MAPS process provides a historical mapping of your procurement, reduces the chance of losing institutional knowledge, and sets a defensible position for selecting the method of purchasing.
