The excitement is building for the Guiding Principles of Public Procurement. The NIGP Annual Forum in San Antonio, TX generated great discussions and support for the project.
Today, the National Association of Counties (NACo), Capital Area Purchasing Association (CAPA), and the NIGP Southeast Florida Chapter joined the collaborative effort.
NIGP Project Leaders, Marcheta E. Gillespie, CPPO, CPPB, C.P.M., CPM; Dr. Clifford McCue, PhD; Tina M. Borger, CPPO; and Candace Riddle are currently building a review team that will focus on the Standards of Practice for Public Procurement.
The review team is comprised of stakeholders from all areas of the public sector, including some from our Supporting Organizations. The review team will be an integral part of the process and will ultimately help shape the final standards for the public procurement profession.
Stay tuned to the Blog for further updates, which will be coming soon!
Procurement affects and is affected by the public sector organization as a whole, and the community it serves, whether at the local, state, or national level. Therefore, participation in the collaborative development and adoption of Public Procurement Values and Guiding Principles by all stakeholders is desired. As a way to show support for this collaborative initiative, professional organizations may join as a Supporting Organization. There is no time or financial commitment to becoming a Supporting organization. It simply means that the organization supports NIGP’s collaborative efforts to develop public procurement values, principles, and standards of practice. If the organization can share the word about the project with its members, that would be very valuable.
