PSDS’ fresh approach to R&D procurement featured in national magazine

Kristin Floyd

A piece authored by Kristin Floyd of Procurement and Supplier Diversity Services was featured in the Summer 2018 issue of Educational Procurement Journal.

(We feel like Kristin would've
made a great cover)

 In her article, “Research and Development RFP: Procurement Assists with Innovation,” Floyd describes her role in improving UVA’s purchasing effectiveness for research and development goods and services. 

 By leveraging the request for proposal (RFP) process, PSDS was able to eliminate sole source justifications and make UVA researchers’ jobs a lot easier. This created cooperative contracts that will be accessed by other universities nationwide and is an ongoing program at UVa until 2025.
