The Procurement Ombudsman is now an Executive Fellow at the Institute for Competition and Procurement Studies (ICPS) at Bangor University in Wales.

Ottawa, June 6, 2013 - The Procurement Ombudsman has accepted an executive fellowship at Bangor University's Institute for Competition and Procurement Studies (ICPS). An invitation was extended to Mr. Brunetta following his presentation at the ICPS in March 2013, where he was honoured to speak to a group of delegates from across the European Union on alternative ways to solve procurement issues outside the traditional judicial setting.

The ICPS' Academy of Procurement Professionals is a knowledge sharing and idea generating network which facilitates collaboration between procurement professionals and procurement academics.  The Ombudsman is eager to work with this rich network of individuals from around the world and exchange information on procurement related trends, innovation, policy and research. This partnership will support the Ombudsman's commitment to stay informed of procurement developments both at home and internationally, and to identify practices applicable within the Canadian context in support of fairness, openness and transparency in procurement.
