    Mike recently retired from the Commonwealth of Kentucky on August 1, 2016. While he was with the State, Mike was in the Office of Procurement Services (OPS) in the Finance and Administration Cabinet (FAC) where he was a Strategic Procurement Specialist II.


    Mike began his procurement career with the State in April 2000. During this time he had the responsibility of creating and administering the Master Agreement Contracts for many of the transportation related items - Fleet vehicles, school buses, tires, tractors, mowers, backhoes, all terrain vehicles, boats, aircraft, Fleet fuel, diesel and propane fuels. Most recently Mike had been the subject matter expert on all types of insurance, advertising, marketing, and digital media services, office supplies, and public safety and law enforcement items.


    He worked with many State Agency representatives in the development of Request for Bids (RFBs) and Request For Proposals (RFPs) which resulted in Contracts and Master Agreement Contracts for their use. These were for the use of many of the State Agencies, local governments (cities and counties), schools, and universities.


    In addition to Mike’s State procurement-related experience, Mike has management supervisory experience. His supervisory responsibility and accountability were for various size U.S. Army active-duty units (as a Platoon Leader for a 35-person platoon and as a Battery Commander for a 150-person Air Defense Artillery battery.) He had responsibility for office staff management in logistical and supply-related active and reserve-duty offices. Mike served as an Instructor as well as a Regional Coordinator for 6 years in the Command and General Staff Officer College (CGSC) and taught various strategic and logistical courses to military personnel. Mike retired from the US Army Reserves with 28 years of service.


    Mike has served as the supervisor for the procurement office / warehouse in an automotive Tier 1 parts supplier. Mike insured that the procurement and warehousing activities were accomplished in a timely manner to allow for uninterrupted parts production and delivery.


    Mike received his Certified Public Procurement Officer (CPPO) certification in November 2008 and his Certified Professional Public Buyer (CPPB) certification in April 2002. Prior to his retirement, Mike also served as a member of the Kentucky Public Procurement Association (KPPA) Board of Directors and was the Chairperson of the Education, Professional Development, and Certification Committee.


    In his new role as being retired, Mike plans to continue facilitating NIGP courses.
