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

Proclaim Your Support!

We are pleased to announce that the latest Public Procurement Practice: Spend Analysis is now open for public comment.  This practice will remain open through March 12, 2012.

We also are delighted to share some exciting news with you to kick of Purchasing Month!  Keith Glatz, Purchasing Manager for the City of Tamarac, Florida set out on a mission to spread the news about the Principles & Practices project – and that he sure did!  Just last week, Mr. Glatz forwarded us proclamations from the City of Tamarac, Florida and the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.  Both proclamations cite support for the Values and Guiding Principles of Public Procurement!

This is another monumental step for the Principles and Practices project and an example that we hope you will carry back to your local departments and organizations as well.
