Program Objective

Procurement Collaboration is a leading provider of capacity building and coaching. Our team has developed a next-generation approach to public and private government contracting.

We envision a world where every individual/company is empowered to thrive in their specialty, regardless of their size.
We’re making this a reality by combining three vital and important government contracting programs that look beyond traditional service support. Our method is designed to accurately assess a company’s true ability and willingness to compete for contracting opportunities.

The Illinois Hispanic Chamber of Commerce houses three major government contracting programs. The programs have vast capacity building resources and include learning applications such as one-on-one coaching, cohort and peer learning.
The Mission of the Procurement Collaboration is to unify our internal programs within the Chamber and to combine all of our programmatic resources to better serve our clients and help them to reach their goals effectively.
