Some things are inevitable, and changes to how we purchase and account for things is one of them. Starting at the beginning of next fiscal year we will be adopting a more uniform method of procurement. The new method will bring all of our departments and functions under one universal procurement system. To be clear, we will still support mission critical procurement activities in manufacturing and order fulfillment activities until they have been fully transitioned, but our commitment, as always, is to our products and customers.

Nancy Walthers will be heading up the effort and transition activities over the remainder of Q4 and has my full support.She will also manage the sustaining group post launch. Please reach out to her at: email address here with any questions or concerns.
