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

New Practice To Be Released: Transparency


The next Practice (Transparency in Public Procurement) will be released next week!  Currently the practice is undergoing the first draft review with a small focus group.  So, get prepared to start the commenting process once again.  Following the release of Transparency new practices will be available for comment on a regular basis.

If you would like to engage in further debate about the Practices, there will be a workshop at the 2011 NIGP Forum on Saturday, August 27, 2011 from 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM (EST).  Individuals will receive instructions for commenting on the practices online, and will be given the opportunity to openly discuss the practices in person.  To register for a one day pass to Forum 2011, click here.

Oh, and did we mention...there is a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT...for the project at Forum 2011.
