Summit magazine


From federal, provincial and municipal governments, to hospitals, school boards, crown corporations and other public agencies, the public sector is big business in Canada - $100 billion worth of big business. Summit magazine, flagship publication of the Summit Group, examines the intricacies of procurement for the buyers and sellers who populate that marketplace. The breadth of topics covered includes green purchasing, electronic tendering, legal and ethical issues, lifecycle and asset management, public-private partnerships, proposal writing and evaluation, professional development and best practices, plus much more.

Launched in November 1998, Summit is both a source of news and analysis about the evolving public sector marketplace and a forum for dialogue between governments and their suppliers.

From the Editor

"As Summit develops, we are becoming a kind of community centre, serving buyers and sellers alike in an even more vibrant marketplace. In that capacity, we'll be constantly supplying information and advice to stakeholders across the country. You can look to:

  • The pages of Summit magazine - in print - for reports and analysis from some of Canada's finest journalists.
  • Our website, which includes the best of Summit magazine as well as links to other sites and breaking news from the world of public sector procurement. The real pros are making it their home page.
  • Tools for buyers and suppliers, including books and videos featuring Summit columnist Michael Asner, already known to thousands of suppliers as a reliable guide to the public sector marketplace.
  • Finally, our ongoing two-way relationships with the stakeholders in public sector procurement - governments at all levels, purchasing organizations, supplier groups and others. Frankly, those connections, and the interest of readers like you, are what keep our community centre going.

Taken together, these tools will make Summit the 'go to' place on the public sector procurement marketplace."
