Library 2.0 Gang Podcast: September 2008: System Procurement

"All are agreed that the purchasing of a library system is not an insignificant undertaking, but in these times of rapidly changing 2.0 technology and open source systems, are the current procurement processes still fit for purpose? To help with the discussion we are joined by two guests this month who are both veterans of many tender processes:

Karen Reece Sales Manager, Talis.
Rob McGee Founder and President of RMG Consultants Inc.

Gang members Carl Grant and Marshall Breeding join in the discussion about the frustrations of the procurement process and how it may or may not be applicable. There again, the process does lead to contractual rigor, but is it at the expense of stifled innovation?"
