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

Ethical Procurement Now Open For Public Comment


We now have the latest practice, Ethical Public Procurement, open for comment.  This will be one of our final practices for 2011.  Please take a moment to visit the Practice and comment.  It will remain open through January 10, 2012.

As you know the Principles & Practices project is now global, and Ethical Procurement is at the very foundation of the Public Procurement profession.  Because of the extreme importance of ethics in the profession, we hope that you will feel compelled to engage in the comment period for this practice, like never before.
