Procurement results are in bloom around the Capitol as staff prepare for the Kentucky Derby activities this weekend. It is easy to see the impressive efforts put forth by the talented designers and grounds crew....not so easy to see are the efforts put forth by procurement staff who purchase the plants, lawn care materials and equipment so the crews can work their magic.
