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

San Antonio Public Purchasing Association Joins as Supporting Organization

Not only did the beautiful city of San Antonio, Texas play host to NIGP's 2010 Forum, but they now join the ranks of many others.

San Antonio Public Purchasing Association, a NIGP chapter, has joined as a Supporting Organization of the Values and Guiding Principles.

What a great way to kick off the New Year and what an appropriate Texas style motto for 2011!  May we all work to make the Principles and Practice Project BIGGER and BETTER in 2011!
