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

Canadian Public Procurement Council Endorses Values and Guiding Principles

We are pleased to announce that the Canadian Public Procurement Council Board of Directors approved its support of the Values and Guiding Principles for Public Procurement on November 17, 2010.  In addition, the CPPC officially endorsed the Values and Guiding Principles as a "foundation for building the standards of practice" for the Public Procurement profession.

CPPC was established in September 1999 to be the leading resource for public procurement across Canada.  CPPC is the first Supporting Organization to formally endorse the Values and Guiding Principles, following the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing's formal adoption of them in October of this year.
