Happy Procurement Month


As an employee and parent in Southern Arizona's largest school district, I take pride in what our department does for our District and the children.  From what is served for lunch to school security cameras. I PROCURE ON for the kids!

During times of crisis, the procurement community really pulls together.  I worked with my chapter to find where people were sourcing PPEs such as hand sanitizers and shared this knowledge with other entities. That's one of the reasons, I PROCURE ON.

When I was new to the profession, I was doing a solicitation for bulletproof vests for our police department when one of our officers was shot and killed in the line of duty. It made me realize how important what you do in Procurement is.

It's very gratifying to play a role in opening a 400-unit apartment complex for low-income persons and be able to give them a better place to live.  That's one of the many reasons, I PROCURE ON.

You stretch a different muscle every day. There is no day that is the same. You get to negotiate agreements, you get to develop solicitations, you get to dabble in contract writing, you get to create policies. You get to change the environment that you live in. That’s why I PROCURE ON.

I spent some time in the university system, so it always feels great to see the impact of bringing better value to students - like a new dining hall or new building for educational purposes.  That's one of the reasons, I PROCURE ON."
