“BUYING AT MCMASTER” 101

(A Refresher on Current Policy)

NEW START TIME


 

The Ontario government established a Procurement Directive, effective April 1, 2011 to ensure open, fair and transparent financial practices at all Broader Public Sector (BPS) organizations. 

There is increased scrutiny regarding how public funds are spent. Some changes are big, some are small, but the message from the Ontario government is clear: compliance is mandatory!

The Research Office for Administration, Development and Support (ROADS) and Health Research Services (HRS) are offering the following. All McMaster personnel are welcome.
