Innovation Procurement : Putting Theory into Practice

Sarah Friesen, Friesen Concepts Inc.

Daniel Fabiano, Partner, Fasken Law Firm

HSCN has launched a new and expanded Innovation Procurement Toolkit, and many of you have already attended the in depth training that covers early market engagement (EME) strategies, outcome-based specifications (OBS) and value-based evaluation criteria (VBEC). This session offers practical guidance on how to leverage those EME strategies, OBS and VBEC when populating the Request for Pre-Qualification (RFPQ) and Request for Solution (RFS) templates. We will also explore other important elements of the competitive documents, and take a closer look at the corresponding agreement templates, highlighting key factors to mitigate risk.
