THE STATE OF PROCUREMENT IN SCHOOLS — AND HOW TO IMPROVE WHAT CAN BE AN ARDUOUS PROCESS — HAS BEEN THE SOURCE OF ONGOING DEBATE AND A SUBJECT OF RESEARCH.
Nicole Neal is chief executive officer of Noodle Markets, a newly launched online market platform where educators and vendors can do transparent “speed dating” to determine if there is a good match.

“The districts are really, really excited about the possibility of having a place to go where they can research vendors and the products and services they offer.

They just don’t have the sales power that allows them to get those good products in front of the districts.”
