Re: OpenChain and Procurement Departments


We could recover an April version of the document from GitHub:

I have taken that document and incorporated the feedback I could find in emails. If you could take a moment to review the OpenChain-and-Procurement-Departments-Beta2 to provide feedback it would be super. Attached for reference though edits preferred here:!AsXJVqby5kpnj3mJzXKed3YobEV5
(Yes, I will be backing this up offline frequently)

My apologies everyone for this interruption to our workflow and contribution process.



PS: Alex, can you go back to the historic news post on OpenChain in Procurement and change the (old, dead) link to: ?

Hi all

I have bad news I am afraid :(
Someone hacked and deleted our procurement document on OneDrive by using the edit privileges. There is no sign of the document in the Recycle Bin or history.

Unless someone happens to have an offline copy we will have to start again. The document name contained “OpenChain” “Procurement” and “Beta1"

This is obviously not what we want to see happen under any circumstances. I will be ensuring we have offline backups moving forward.

Hi all!

I have started a blue-sky document to contextualize and explain OpenChain for procurement departments, something that will become increasingly possible throughout this year, especially after we become a formal ISO standard. Can you put some eyes on and provide suggestions for improvement?!AsXJVqby5kpnjjqFOGRBo3LjvkSj
This is on Microsoft OneDrive to ensure friends all over the world, including in China, have easy online edit access.
