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.

For more information, or to be added as a Supporting Organization, please contact Tina M. Borger, CPPO, Research Director for NIGP at

Upcoming Values and Principles Discussion at NIGP Forum

Guiding Principles: Tuesday, August 17th 8:30am - 10:00am

Presented By:
Dr. Clifford McCue, PhD

3rd VP of NIGP

This year Dr. Clifford McCue and Marcheta E. Gillespie, CPPO,CPPB, C.P.M.,CPM have the honor of sharing information about the newly drafted Guiding Principles (GP) and Values of the Public Procurement Profession. On behalf of Tina Borger, who was an instrumental team member and fellow leader on the GP Task Force, and Candace Riddle (the newest NIGP staff member of the team), Cliff and Marcheta will be sharing the hard work done by the Task Force, the overall approach to the Guiding Principles implementation and the future of this initiative.

Particularly critical to the success and value of this effort, is the input by the professional community, especially our NIGP community. We are hoping that you'll be able to attend and participate in a dialogue about the GPs and share your thoughts on what the Task Force has developed. We need to engage critical thinkers and individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to our profession, and who are interested in the on-going development and elevation of our profession.

So, if you can find time in your already busy schedules at Forum, please consider joining Cliff and Marcheta for some lively discussion and challenging questions. We would love to have you!
