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

NCMA Joins as Supporting Organization


We are pleased to announce that the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) has joined the Principles & Practices project as a Supporting Organization!  NCMA's board gave its blessing to join as a Supporting Organization and confirmation was received by the project staff this morning.

In addition to NCMA, we are also pleased to announce that the Gulf Coast Association of Governmental Purchasing Officers (GCAGPO), an NIGP Chapter, also joined as a Supporting Organization last Friday.

The project now boasts over 50 Adopting and Supporting Organizations, and continues to grow on a weekly basis.
