Arizona State University has partnered with the Ontario University Collaboration (OUC) to implement the value-based model concepts and business practices. OUC’s member institutions include Western University, University of Waterloo, Queens University, Wilfrid Laurier University, and University of Ottawa. Researchers from ASU will educate, train, and support the Procurement Offices in the five participating institutions. The goal of the partnership is to provide the OUC with a new technique for conducting Request for Proposals (RFP) by conducting up to two collaborative projects, available for all universities in Ontario, as well as two or three projects at each of the participating institutions. Lessons learned from all of these projects will be compiled into a training program for other non-participating universities across Ontario.
