The K-12 Market Outlook: Technology, Procurement, and COVID’s Impact with Jere Smith, Director of Capital Improvements for Atlanta Public Schools
The K-12 market has seen a lot of change this year. School closures have caused students and teachers to adapt a virtual lifestyle and capital improvement projects to be put on hold. On the flip side, without students and faculty occupying schools, it has allowed the construction process to become more streamlined. Some projects are now projected to finish ahead of schedule.
On this episode of AEC Marketing for Principals, hosts Judy Sparks and Katie Cash are joined by Jere Smith, Director of Capital Improvements for Atlanta Public Schools, to discuss the changing K-12 Market. Smith talks about the impact technology is having on the procurement process, what K-12 owners are looking for in proposals and in interviews, and what he sees on the horizon for 2021.
What you’ll learn about in this episode:
- COVID’s impact on the K-12 market
- Technology shaping the procurement process
- Best practices for proposal submission
- What to expect in 2021
