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

Values and Guiding Principles Headed for Approval


Public comments have been considered, and revisions have been made to the Values and Guiding Principles for Public Procurement.  A final version of the VGP's will be put before NIGP's board for approval in late October.  Stay tuned to the site for a release of the revisions around that time!

The review team has continued to grow.  A survey of team members has started and a head-to-head race is in the making between several Guiding Principles.  The leading Guiding Principle, chosen by the review team, will be used to build the first Standard of Practice for Public Procurement.
