Vision 2020 Situational Analysis on Procurement

As part of McGill’s Vision 2020 process, the University’s purchasing activities were benchmarked with those of other institutions. The report (Spring 2012) concluded that McGill’s current procurement processes were “in the middle of the pack” with respect of sustainability. This was before the adoption of the new Procurement Policy and the instigation of the 5-Year Sustainable Procurement Strategic Planning exercise. These new developments and the commitment demonstrated by Procurement Services staff and colleagues across campus should help place McGill among the leaders in terms of Sustainable Procurement.
