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

ICMA Joins as a Supporting Organization

The International City/ County Management Association (ICMA) has joined as a supporting organization of the Values and Guiding Principles for Public Procurement.

ICMA was founded in 1914 and supports more than 9,000 city, town, and county experts and other individuals and organizations throughout the world.  The management decisions made by ICMA's members affect 185 million individuals living in thousands of communities, from small villages and towns to large metropolitan areas.(

This is another exciting step in the Values and Guiding Principles project, as well as the development of the Standards of Practice for Public Procurement.
