Apeca is the only association today that brings together public entities and their suppliers in the same ecosystem. It is an association of committed actors, passionate people who want to move the lines in their fields and develop good practices. As an association of economic actors and public entities, Apeca’s ambition is to optimize public purchasing. Particularly mobilized during the confinement and the crisis we are going through, Apeca wanted to make very concrete its values of sharing, accompaniment and support. In this perspective, it is committed to the training of its members by proposing learning paths for companies and public entities. For example, Apeca offers a three-step course on purchasing performance:
Apeca’s positioning is clear. Since its creation in 2003, Sharing and highlighting good practices are the spearheads of the various contents made available to members. Apeca’s areas of expertise focus on four areas: public procurement, purchasing performance and CSR, mobility and payment methods. Belonging to both the public and private sectors, our members and partners are committed to sharing their expertise, developing their network, supporting each other and exchanging in order to pool their experiences. On the one hand, it allows public sector companies to better understand their purchases and on the other hand, to offer private sector companies a better understanding of the organization of the public system.
Different work groups structure the thinking and the support of each person. Led by Julien Chambert and Ziad Minkara, the working group on mobility is starting its mission. Its objective is to prepare an inventory of the actors of professional mobility following the pandemic which affects us. Since March 2020 the world of mobility has been turned upside down. The actors had to adapt, reorganize and transform themselves in a sustainable way. Similarly, public entities have had to review mobility policies and adapt markets in an ever-changing environment.
The purpose of this working group is to take stock of the situation with the entire ecosystem in order to support the resumption of activity in the best possible conditions.
During the lockdown, the entire board of directors mobilized with an increased willingness to help its members. Becoming a member of Apeca means becoming part of this community of supportive actors. Aware of its role to play, Apeca has done everything possible to help its members, to enable them to continue to develop, to train their teams and to support their recovery. This vocation of support is in our current context essential.
