Description: 

State and local governments are being asked to do more with fewer resources. Despite these budgetary constraints and the fact that contracting is a significant portion of spending, procurement is often treated as a back-office function, and contracts are renewed year after year without any review. The Harvard Kennedy School Government Performance Lab is helping governments obtain greater value from contractual spending through results-driven contracting strategies. In this session, representatives from the GPL will discuss examples of projects to improve results of human services and public works procurements and contracts as part of the What Works Cities initiative.
