Action Plan

SFY21 priorities are:

  • Roll out Best Practice Procedure guidelines for procurement and successfully implement for any new procurement, agreement, or amendment.
  • Implement Invoice Process Improvement Project outcomes, and process invoices on-time within the agreement payment terms.
  • Move to a remote file system to negate the need for hard files, which are not easily accessible to staff.
