Perhaps it was the Luck of the Irish, or maybe it was just hard work, but this week we welcomed the Missouri Association of Public Purchasing Chapter of NIGP as a Supporting Organization and the Loudon County (VA) Procurement Department as an Adopting Organization of the Values and Guiding Principles.
Loudon County becomes the second public procurement department, behind the City of Tucson to formally adopt the Values and Guiding Principles.
Work continues on the Cooperative Purchasing Standard of practices, which is now with an initial focus group for review. We anticipate releasing that standard for public comment late next week. In the interim, the Standard of Practice: Performance Metrics remains open for public comment.
