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

Earn a Cameo Appearance for Your Organization!


Maybe it is just Purchasing Month, or maybe it is Spring in the air, but some great things are happening with the Principles and Practices Project.

We’ve had several municipalities support or adopt the Values & Guiding Principles in their Purchasing Month Resolutions (City of Tamarac, FL; City of Tarpon Springs, FL; City of Winter Park, FL; City of Franklin, TN).  This is really exciting, as we love to see the Values & Guiding Principles being implemented as part of the daily professional practice.

Speaking of practice….we have some very exciting news in this area that will be released early next week, so stay tuned to the website and our social media outlets to be the first to know!  You can reach our social media outlets via the media tab on the right hand side of this page.  Be the first one to re-tweet the BIG NEWS next week and we’ll give your organization a special cameo in our next posting!!
