Schooner’s recent October 2020 NCMA Contract Management article, “Warming up to Sustainable Procurement,” highlights the opportunities and implementation considerations around sustainable procurement.

He makes the case for the acquisition workforce embracing sustainable procurement as a cost effective, long term investment for government.  Schooner explains how evaluations can be structured to account for sustainability in the services and products acquired by the government.

In addition, Schooner highlights the variations in procurement policy across the political spectrum and how those difference may manifest post-election.
