Join our panel discussion to learn about strategies to mitigate the supply chain disruptions that are leading to manufacturing delays and potential equipment availability shortages in the New Year. In this discussion we will explore the creative programs and strategies specifically offered by one manufacturer, to support your successful planning and acquisition of needed equipment at the right time, while balancing the processes and approvals required of public procurement professionals.
