A message from our new Director of Corporate Membership, Nicole Leonardi:

As CAPS Research dives into a big new year, I am excited to join the team and meet all our members. I bring to CAPS eight years of supply chain management experience, which will serve as my launch pad to make sure our membership program serves the specific needs of each of our members. I look forward to elevating our membership program with more frequent touch points to help you take advantage of CAPS benefits and address your business needs.  Nicole Leonardi

Quick fact: Compliance to the Contracting Process

72% of companies that have formal compliance policies for pre- and post-award activity require pre-award reviews or meetings prior to approval. Our most recent Snapshots survey provides insight into understanding companies’ use and effectiveness of these policies, and it's available in the CAPS Library now (link below).  contract award compliance
