CIPS and NIGP launch procurement resource

A new web portal allows greater access to best practice in procurement. The Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) and the National Institute of Government Purchasing (NGIP) launched the portal to support their Partnership for Public Procurement.

The portal offers an online evaluation to improve purchasing effectiveness and access to the partnership’s Values and Guiding Principles (VGPs) to help improve public procurement.

The resources can be accessed at: www.globalpublicpreocurement.org

David Noble, CIPS CEO said: “Since launching our partnership with NIGP in 2011 we have gone from strength to strength and this new portal underpins our on-going commitment to helping develop public procurement communities across the globe. With public procurement there is no one size fits all which is why we have devised a portal to help support all levels of procurement maturity across global governments.”

Rick Grimm, NIGP CEO said: “The portal and the Profiler resources we have co-developed reflect the strength and value of this global partnership. The Profiler suite is an empowering, practical pathway agencies can use to guide them toward greater procurement effectiveness that translates to greater support and services for their communities.”
