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 Presented at Region II Conference


The Values and Guiding Principles were presented to NIGP Region II at their annual conference this weekend.  Region II held their conference at the Gaylord National Convention Center on the Potomac in Maryland.  Not only was the Region II Conference a great success, with about 150 in attendance, but it was a brief preview for NIGP's 2011 Forum which will be held in the same location.

The 2011 NIGP Forum will be held August 25-29.  A call for presentations is currently underway.  The submission period began November 17, 2010 and will run through December 20, 2010.  For more information click here.
