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

Baby It's Cold Outside: But It's Heating Up In Here!

Fridged temperatures may be grinding things to a halt outside, but the Principles and Practices project is heating up!  Tis' the Season to become a Supporting Organization!  Three NIGP Chapters including, NIGP Arkansas Chapter, NIGP Mississippi Association of Governmental Purchasing and Property Agents (MAGPPA), and NIGP Tennessee Association of Public Purchasing (TAPP), joined the ranks of Supporting Organizations last week.
On October 23, 2010 NIGP's Board of Directors officially adopted the Values and Guiding Principles.  However, last week, NIGP's CEO, Rick Grimm, put out a challenge to the NIGP Board of Directors, to gain adoption from each one of NIGP's Chapters.  Thus far, NIGP Region 4, leads the race with 100% of their chapters signed on as Supporting Organizations.
So, if you're feeling a bit chilly, join the challenge, turn up the heat, and become a Supporting Organization!
