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

NASACT Joins as Supporting Organization

The National Association of Auditors, Comptrollers, and Treasurers (NASACT) joined as a Supporting Organization today.  This is yet another significant milestone for the project, as we seek to engage professionals in the public sector that interacts with procurement on a daily basis.

Furthermore, many Supporting Organizations and Endorsing Organizations are beginning to set an example, and share the news on their websites. 

The point is, regardless of how you decide to share the word, every little bit helps.  We encourage all Supporting/ Endorsing Organizations to proudly display the Principles & Practices logo with a link to this website.  By doing so, you will be assisting us to keep the public and key stakeholders informed of project updates, and furthermore, drive more public feedback on the proposed Standards of Practice (now open for public comment).
