Procurement and Business Services Recognized with Award of Excellence in Procurement

The Georgia Tech procurement department has been recognized for its exceptional contributions to the institution with the National Association of Education Procurement (NAEP) Award of Excellence in Procurement. The award highlights the outstanding work of Procurement and Business Services (PBS), which has demonstrated innovation and dedication to delivering value to faculty, staff, and students.

Executive Director Ajay Patel and Director Erin Mitchell accepted the award on behalf of Georgia Tech at the NAEP’s 2024 EPIC Meeting, where they presented on the use of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) in procurement operations. RPA has transformative potential, allowing organizations to automate manual tasks, reduce errors, and improve operational efficiency, leading to significant cost savings and process optimization.

Georgia Tech is at the forefront of innovation by implementing bots to automate administrative functions in asset management, accounts payable, and grants and contracts. For example, the “compliance documents bot” streamlines communication with suppliers to request essential compliance documents like E-Verify, Certificate of Insurance, and Sole Source. Additionally, the accounts payable supplier team plans to introduce a “welcome bot” to interact with new vendors via email, providing information on purchase orders and invoices policies.

These initiatives underscore PBS’s commitment to embracing advanced technology to better serve the campus community and achieve operational excellence.
