A COMMBUYS Readiness Workbook for Commonwealth Agencies was distributed via email to all COMMBUYS Liaisons and copied to Chief Procurement Officers. The Workbook provides guidance and instructions on a number of preliminary tasks that must be completed by the Agency prior to go-live. An Excel file containing Readiness Worksheets was distributed at the same time.
In addition, 3 Readiness Webcasts file size 1MB designed to review the contents of the Workbook were attended by over 120 Commonwealth Agencies on January 15th and 16th. The slides and speaker notes are posted here for everyone to review.
