Construction Procurement

Episode I: A Bid to Survive - The Rise of the Procurist


Here is what a very experienced administrator said after attending this session: 

"I really, really enjoyed the class. It reinforced what I already knew and pointed out some things we can improve upon. He made learning fun."

If you only attend one construction procurement training this year, this is the one to choose. The first decision you make about construction is the most important decision. This training will elevate your purchasing competence and confidence. Whether you are new to construction procurement or it’s been a while since your last project, you will get the foundation you need to succeed. Ask around, if you come to this training you will be ready to go when the board says it’s time to build.

The Story

Meet Ted Brown. After 11 years of trying, Ted’s employer, the Rascall Independent School District, just passed its 375-million-dollar bond. Ted is new to the district and has some experience and training in construction procurement, but he is about to take on full responsibility for contracting out 375 million dollars of bond money.

Impossible odds transform Ted into "The Procurist." Ted must turn 375 million dollars in funds into the 400 million dollars’ worth of projects the board expects.  

Meet Ted's boss, Mr. Speed Damon / AKA The Appropriator, who has a fondness for speed, thrift, and bids. The bond has everything in it from high schools to concession stands and it’s up to The Procurist and his team of experts [YOU] to keep him out of hot water with speed and to uphold the law.

You will be on one of two teams of experts who will compete in series of challenges along the way to help Ted survive the bond - if he can.  

In the last hour you compete for Ted and to become the MQBDCQ™. Who knows what happens? Does Ted get it done? Does his boss? Does he make it through the bond?  Being there is the only way to find out.
