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

York County, VA Leads the Way

York County, VA Central Purchasing set a precedent today.  They became the first organization to publicly display the new Principles & Practices logo on their website! 

We are absolutely delighted to see an organization making use of the resources provided to them, to spread the word! 

In addition to this exciting news, we also received word that the Delaware Public Purchasing Association unamiously voted to become a Supporting Organization today.
