The president of our IT vendor passed along an article that mentioned a new IT purchasing standard that has been developed by General Motors and Carnegie Mellon University. Reading the article, left me a little curious: could a purchasing standard written from an IT point of view really achieve adoption among purchasing professionals?
I would love to read the standard, but…
IT IS FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTEEN PAGES LONG!
If you have more time than I, you can read the report here.
I’d love to hear a purchasing person’s opinion on this thing!
