The ability to synthesize and meet requirements in order to provide service to the greater public entity is an essential function of the procurement professional. A critical element of this analysis, however, is the ability to directly apply information gleaned from researched materials and criteria to individual procurements, aligning organizational goals and metrics to the success and health of the entity.
