As stewards of the public trust, procurement professionals are held to a higher standard of ethics than most public employees, acting with confidence to wisely expend the taxpayer dollars. As such, procurement practitioners must serve not only as the ethical leaders of their respective entities but also as an honest and transparent representative within the larger communities they support.
