Research and Development RFP:
Procurement Assists with Innovation

Kristin Floyd, MBA
Sole sources getting you down? Fighting the good
fight? Making your departments toe the line?
Cheer up. Someone (the University of Virginia) has
developed an innovative and interesting concept that
cuts across all that. You'll definitely be
10
taking notes from Kristin Floyd's article.

Training, Testing, and Incentives

Dietrich M. von Biedenfeld, Esq., CPPO
Some individuals who get promoted from worker to
manager, and even others who are well educated,
commit the sin of remaining workers. These individuals
would do well to read to Professor von Biedenfeld's
article and put his
16
recommendations into practice. 

Annual Meeting Wrap-Up

Shane Boyle
The paint is dry on another NAEP Annual Meeting. This

Evolution or Revolution? Campus Cards:
Time for a New Business Model

Robert C. Huber, CMC, CPCM
The Mobile Millennial generation is quickly losing the
notion of cards being any kind of necessity, since
their smartphones have all the credentialing and
payment technology they need. So, why are
so many campuses still using cards?
Good question. Let's move into the present
22
and kiss our dear cards goodbye.

Best and Final: Procurement: How the
Torch Gets Passed

Daysha Holmes
How an individual slips into the profession of higher
education procurement can often be a story well
worth the telling and the hearing. Such is certainly the
case with this wonderful recounting of how a college
student in her senior year fell into the profession
she now dearly loves. It is as much a tale about
mentoring as it is about professional development.  28
