Pulse Podcast Pulse Podcast What does centralization look like in a decentralized state?

Alaska can give us some insight!


This week on the Pulse Podcast, we talk with Thor Vue, Chief Procurement Officer for the great state of Alaska, about how Alaska’s procurement office has been going through a centralization process. Thor, who has been leading the transformation, discusses some of the challenges his office has faced over the past few years. He explains how he is moving the team forward in the process and shares about Alaska’s new and innovative Centers of Procurement Excellence. Then, we play a new game called the Key Takeaways Game where Josh and Kevin each present an important takeaway from the interview. Hold on to your hats!
