MoFo Law Clerk Co-Authors Contract Management Article on Sustainable Procurement

FCPAMoFo law clerk Markus Speidel co-wrote an article for National Contract Management Association’s Contract Management magazine with George Washington University Law School Professor Steven Schooner. The article, titled “‘Warming Up’ to Sustainable Procurement,” discusses how the procurement community can address climate change via sustainable procurement. The authors pose that government action is required to combat climate change. They also implore procurement professionals to rectify their impact on climate change by overcoming “the tyranny of low price” and rethinking the lifecycle cost when evaluating procurements.
