Public sector organizations have been shifting towards increasing efficiency amid high expectations and public pressure.
Then the pandemic brought in new challenges: scrutinized and altered budgets, remote working, vulnerabilities in the supplier bases, meeting ESG goals and cyber and data security concerns. There are also demands for more transparency and responsiveness, ease of doing business and ensuring equity.
To efficiently deliver on public service missions and maximize budget efficiency, government and public sectors and non-profit organizations need to reduce risk, boost resilience, leverage data and accelerate digital transformation. And they are turning to GEP – to transform how they manage procurement and supply chain and unleash the potential to create impact and change within their communities.
