IACCM to announce the release of global economic study during September 30th PI Window on Business Broadcast.

As you know tomorrow at 3:00 PM EDT I will be welcoming as a guest to the PI Window on Business Show Canada’s Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway Stockwell Day along with an esteemed international guest panel to discuss the impact of the Obama Administration’s Buy American policy on the economy.

As a member of our panel, Tim Cummins who is the CEO of the International Association for Contract & Commercial Management (IACCM) will use this opportunity to present for the first time publicly the results from the association’s recent economic study. In fact, PI Window on Business was the first organization outside of the IACCM to receive an excerpt of this report.

While I will leave it up to Tim to share the specific details of the study’s findings there are some very interesting high level observations including:

  • an emerging trend on the part of buyers to seek out alternative sources of supply
  • a greater level of optimism in the Asia-Pacific Region relating to the time frame for an economic recovery, and
  • a concern that ethical values have diminished as a result of the economic meltdown.



The International Association for Contract & Commercial Management (IACCM) is a non-profit foundation recognized as the international authority on the role of contracting and Commitment Management in the global networked economy.

A leader in research and innovative learning techniques, IACCM works with corporations, public and academic bodies to provide thought-leadership and understanding of “best practice” contracting and relationship standards.

IACCM defines organizational models and skills to ensure integrity, trust and the collaborative trading relationships that are necessary to support the continued development of the global economy. Its membership is drawn from more than 1,600 corporations and public sector organizations in over 90 countries and represents a community of contract and commercial managers, attorneys and supply management executives and professionals.
