As stewards of the public trust and the party responsible for ensuring the value of the taxpayers’ dollar is obtained, public procurement professionals must consistently strive to ensure the ethical and legal expenditure of the entity’s funds. Key to this responsibility is the establishment of cross-departmental agreements based on the characteristics and quality of purchased products through the use of standards.
