What would make state procurement policies most effective?

Procurement policies govern the state's purchases. Larger states buy billions of dollars of goods and services every year -- a number that may increase as leaders embrace privatization and outsourcing of public commodities. The public's ability to track government spending varies from state to state.

What about contract management and oversight?

Contract management is a key component of effective procurement (both public and private)--a good contract is useless if no one is responsible for making sure it is being enforced. Was contract management addressed in the scoring criteria? I didn't see it, but maybe I missed it.
