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

We are pleased to announce that the past week was absolutely record breaking for the Principles & Practices project!

The National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) has officially joined as a Supporting Organization.  The National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO), Inc. was established in 1947, and is made up of the directors of the central purchasing offices in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the territories of the United States.

To add to that news, the Maryland Public Purchasing Association (MPPA) and the NIGP South New Jersey Chapter have also joined as Supporting Organizations.

NIGP Arizona State Capitol Chapter has set the latest precedent by becoming the first NIGP chapter to join as an Endorsing/ Adopting Organization.

The momentum is continuing to grow around the Principles & Practices Project!
