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

2012 Off to a Strong Start

The Principles & Practices Project is off to a phenomenal start in 2012.  Last week saw the addition of three Supporting and Adopting Organizations!

We are pleased to announce that the NIGP Treasure Coast Chapter signed on as an adopting organization, as well as the NIGP Idaho Public Purchasing Association.   As previously announced, NIGP National officially adopted the Values & Guiding Principles of Public Procurement in October 2010.  The addition of these two chapters now brings NIGP Chapter support / adoption of the project to around 80%.

Other exciting news includes Spikes Cavell’s official Support for the project.  Spikes Cavell is a UK based company that equips decision makers in the public sector with the business intelligence, online tools & analytical insight they need in order to transform the way they procure goods & services.  Their management solutions, to date, have underpinned the efforts to deliver cash savings, measure progress and mange compliance, for more than 800 public sector bodies around the world.
