Episode Notes

Local government spends 2 trillion dollars annually on procurement. Co-founder and CEO of Pavilion, Mariel Reed, shares her unique perspective working in both local government and technology to create solutions that improve the often tedious, slow, and painful procurement processes, including how to:

  • Drastically reduce buying cycles.
  • Maintain compliance.
  • Use contract sharing, and potentially create revenue by sharing your existing contracts.
  • Empower purchasing managers so they can help city/county managers and staff to transform the dreaded procurement headache into a strategic advantage.


Pavilion's free platform for local governments.
