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

SURVEY SAYS: Review Team Survey Results

Recently we conducted a poll of our review team members who will be forging ahead with us during the next portion of the project: Standards of Practice for Public Procurement.

The first poll was posted on the blog site.  The primary intent of the blog poll was to see whether or not review team members could (a) access the blog from work; and (b) decide whether nor not members were comfortable with and knew how to navigate a blog page.

A second poll was sent to the same members via e-mail.  By having review team members complete the survey both ways, we were able to decide which type of survey tool to use going forward.

The SURVEY SAYS that E-mail surveys would be better for the review team.  However, public have heart!  Your input is critical as well and we anticipate that polls will be used on the blog in the near future.

To view the results of each survey visit the Review Team page here.
