March is Procurement Month

Procurement Month

It's YOU time!

In this month, we acknowledge all our professionals who make a difference in procurement efficiency and effectiveness. This month provides the opportunity to help educate elected officials, administrators, taxpayers, and vendors about the procurement process and the admirable work our members perform every day.


Happy Procurement Month

"It's YOU time"

Message from NIGP CEO Rick Grimm

The best part of being a public servant in the Procurement Profession is being entrusted with great responsibilities that require daily application of high morals and ethics.  Also the ability to elevate the profession through continual education and community impact

Procurement Director, Collier County Government, Naples, FL

I have worked in ths profession for 35 years and I enjoy it immensely. In all my years, my greatest accomplishments have been to mentor and help get new purchasing professionals started on their way.

Purchasing Manager, City of Buda, TX

Four years ago I published my first RFP for a new City Hall. Several delays and change orders later, our city installed the last stell beam. Some good things take time but having a reliable support system to reach out to through NIGP forums and online communities makes the wait worth it.
