VICA Construction Procurement Community of Practice (CoP)

About the CoP

VICA initiated the Construction Procurement CoP in February 2021 as a resource for construction procurement specialists from public agencies, municipalities, and regional districts across Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast.

The goal of the CoP is to:

  • Promote open conversations about construction procurement
  • Promote open conversations with public owners about working/engaging successfully with contractors
  • Support the development of a network of/for public sector specialists working in construction procurement in our region

Meeting Frequency

VICA organizes quarterly CoP sessions on a variety of construction procurement topics. Sessions are generally 90 minutes in length and held virtually. Attendance is restricted to public owner-employees.
