Awards & Recognition for NIGP Chapters

NIGP would like to encourage more chapters to showcase their professionalism and development opportunities. That is why we are excited to announce a new two-layered approach to recognizing the accomplishments of our chapters: the Chapter Performance Standards Seal and Outstanding Chapter Awards.


This is your opportunity to promote your professionalism and efforts in advancing the public procurement profession! Get the recognition you deserve by publicly displaying and showcasing the Chapter Performance Standards Seal or the Outstanding Chapter Award on your website, social media platforms, and marketing communications.

NEW - Chapter Performance Standards Seal and Outstanding Chapter Awards

Chapter Performance Standards Seal

NIGP has developed a ‘standard’ in which chapters can strive to follow and advance the opportunities offered to their members. Participating chapters receive a score which records their progress in achieving excellence. Once a chapter successfully meets the standard, a digital seal is issued which the chapter can prominently display to their membership on their website and social media outlets. The four tiers provide motivation for Chapters to achieve an even higher tier in subsequent years.

Congratulations to the 2020 Chapter Performance Standard Seals Recipients:

Outstanding Chapter Awards

This new award is offered in four categories for the pursuit of excellence in practices and innovations; Chapter OperationsChapter MembershipChapter Advocacy and Outreach, and Chapter Professional Development.

The purpose of the Outstanding Chapter Awards is to recognize outstanding chapter practices with the intent of sharing knowledge about them with the rest of the organization. This recognition is competitive, and only one application in each category will be recognized at Forum. All applications in this area will be made available to other chapters in a new best practices library as we push the standards of practice for NIGP Chapters forward.
