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

Please Stay Tuned: 'Tis the Season to Comment!


This week the Principles & Practices project has continued to make tracks around the globe.  In addition to the world wide excitement, we recently closed the public comment period on Practice: Risk Management, and Practice: Public Procurement Policy Manual.  I am happy to report that both practices received some great consultations.  The practices and the comments are available via the “Public Comment” link located on the left side of this page.

We are currently working on the next practice Ethical Public Procurement which will be released in early December for public consultation.  Our focus groups are currently hard at work reviewing the first draft of this document.

We hope that you will continue to follow us and stay informed about the project updates throughout the upcoming holidays!  'Tis the Season . . . to Comment!
