Closing comments

Closing Comments

  • Change is not easy

    • The SOS leadership recognizes you have been accustomed to doing certain procurement tasks in one familiar way for quite some time and it will take some time for you to learn a new way.

  • Help us continuously improve

    • Please be patient but also be willing to let us know what is working and what is not working so we can make adjustments to our business processes to ensure we create the best process for SOS.

  • This is important

    • The SOS leadership understands you are all responsible for a variety of projects and tasks but we ask in the midst of all you do, you find time to participate in assigned Team Georgia Marketplace™ training.

      It is important for us to get this project done in a timely manner and we need your help to do that successfully.
