45th Circuit - Procurement: It Doesn’t Have to Be a Bad Word!

December 7, 2010

Guest Speaker
Phuong Ngo
Partner
Gowlings

Keynote Summary
Although public procurement in Canada accounts for millions of dollars in trade, the need to understand competitive procurement law and methodology is not exclusive to the public sector.  Procurement law is a shifting amoeba, and it is important for corporate counsel and procurement professionals in both public and private sector organizations to manage procurement risk by staying on top of the changes in law and best practices.

Phuong Ngo, a partner at Gowlings and local leading expert in the field, will explain the benefits and pitfalls of buying and selling goods and services through a competitive bidding process.  She will walk you through key case law, including an update on the latest decisions impacting purchasers and vendors from both the private and public sectors.
