  • “Procurement Negotiations” – industry experts discussed an integrative approach to identifying and selecting sources of products, components, raw materials, and services; aligning contractual terms with a business team’s needs; and managing the contract and relationship, addressing ongoing supply and reliability, traceability, early termination, and tender.
