We Need Your Help: Procurement Survey
SUMA wants to make procurement as easy as possible for you. So in the new year, we are hoping to provide members with innovative purchasing software . This software could  simplify your purchasing needs . It could help you find the best savings, reduce your risks, and allow you to easily track your purchase history. However, we   need your expert advice on purchasing to ensure this software is perfect for Saskatchewan municipalities. Fill out this short survey to let us know your procurement practices.

By answering this survey, you will be entered to win a Tim Hortons gift card  and, more importantly, help us understand your municipality.
 

Thank you to everyone who has participated so far. We appreciate your feedback.

Program suggestions? Let us know.
Are there products your municipality would love to save on? Do you currently use a vendor that is not part of the SUMAdvantage program?

Phone  Carl Macdonald , our municipal procurement agent, at 306-525-4395 and share your ideas.
