Lessons From Georgia, the No. 1 Procurement State


the legislature went from a $5,000 no-bid limit to a $25,000 no-bid limit. That also provided both flexibility and speed.

What were the key elements that provided fertile ground for other reforms?

Lowe: Building the curriculum and training classes, revising the rule book and the state’s processes and procedures, and implementing enterprise-wide technology. That was all initiated before I started in 2011. You can’t overlook any of that. The state developed a cradle-to-grave seven-stage process for procurement, and it gave people the tools they needed at each stage.

Thanks. God bless.
