However you say it, the Principles and Practices Project is "ON FIRE". The past several weeks have seen over 160 comments to the current Practice (Cooperative Purchasing) that is open for public review. Speaking of, the reivew period for Copperative Purchasing will be coming to an end on June 10, 2011! So if you have anything left to add, please do so prior to that date.
In addition to the AWESOME comments we've been receiving, we have added several members from our Supporting/ Adopting Organizations to the Review Team. Today we added our 91st individual! This is great news as the more diversity and input we have into the collaborative development, the better the resulting Practices will be.
Looking forward towards the next few months, we are preparing for several conferences. There will be a presentation on the Principles & Practices at the Association of Government Accountants Annual Forum, July 10-13, 2011 in Atlanta, GA; and multiple workshops on the Principles & Practices at NIGP's Annual Forum in National Harbour, MD, August 25-29, 2011.
Thank you again to everyone who is engaging in the efforts to develop the Principles and Practices. Every little bit helps "add fuel to the fire"!
