    NIGP will be presenting at the Aid and International Development Forum on Thursday, July 22, 2010 from 12:45 – 1:15.

    The procurement of goods and services by government accounts for approximately 10-15% of GDP for developed countries, and up to as much as 20% GDP for developing countries. With the vast amount of resources being influenced by the purchasing process, and those charged with the responsibility of insuring that the public receives the best value for their tax dollars, it is somewhat surprising that there is no formal agreement on just how government should expend resources. Perhaps even more problematic is the fact that procurement professionals, and the associations that represent their profession, have not agreed to a set of general principles to guide those doing government work.

    As we all work to develop and implement best practices to improve the effectiveness of our organization within the global community, NIGP is delighted to share with you the public procurement guiding principles, which are designed to guide all of the internal and external stakeholders as they work to improve the delivery of public goods and services. This informative discussion is meant to generate conversation and NIGP is seeking your input.

    The session will consist of a brief introduction to the proposed values and principles followed by a time for collaborative discussion. Come prepared to discuss your day-to-day duties and how the proposed values and principles may apply to your operation. Would you follow them? If not, what would you change?
