    I.     Welcome
          * Presented by Lenora Phillips and Jo Ellen Mitchell

    Description: A wide range of policies at the local, state and federal level apply to procurement, but navigating these rules correctly can be confusing and time consuming. This training covers procurement basics, defining local, where to find local products, and the variety of ways schools can purchase locally in accordance with regulations. Sourcing local products entails more than the procurement process and can require specialized knowledge about the local marketplace that will inform a district’s purchasing decisions. In this training, we present the information and resources that districts need to purchase local products for schools.
