Claude M. Millman was quoted in a September 21, 2023 City & State New York article titled “City & State’s Government Procurement conference focuses on modernization.” City leaders, lobbyists and procurement specialists gathered at the Museum of Jewish Heritage for City & State’s Government Procurement Conference to discuss best business practices amidst the procurement process.
The article includes the following quote from Millman:
“I think it’s really important to develop relationships with all of the government agencies that you’re going to deal with, before problems arise,” he said. “You need to know the procurement professionals, and you really need to have relationships with the government relations professionals.” Millman said he thinks “lobbyists get a bad name.” “But if you’re not using a lobbyist, you’re just an unregistered lobbyist,” he told attendees. “So don’t feel so bad about the registered ones. They’re actually the ones that are complying with all the disclosure obligations and things like that, and most likely doing it right.”
