I am Andrea Patrucco and I am currently an Assistant Professor of Supply Chain Management in the Department of Marketing and Logistics at Florida International University College of Business.
I graduated from Politecnico di Milano (Italy) and moved to the United States in 2017, where I was a faculty at the Pennsylvania State University.
My main research expertise is in the area of buyer-supplier relationship management in both the private and public sectors.
My main passion is, indeed, public procurement! I am one of the academic leaders of the International Research Study on Public Procurement Research group and, over the years, I have helped several public organizations to better understand the role and value of procurement for public management. I am included in the list of public procurement experts of the Publications Office of the European Union. In the United States, I actively collaborate with the two most important public procurement organizations: NASPO - National Association of State Procurement Officers and NIGP: the institute for public procurement. 
In collaboration with other colleagues, I have contributed to realize two important research reports in relevant public procurement areas:
