March is Procurement Month

Procurement Month 2017


Time to celebrate the role of the public procurement profession

When we celebrate Procurement Month, we acknowledge an elite group of professionals that have made a difference in governmental efficiency and effectiveness. This month provides the opportunity to help educate elected officials, administrators, taxpayers and vendors about the procurement process and the admirable work you perform every day.

The underlying theme for all activities during Procurement Month is the promotion and recognition of the field of Public Procurement.  Your colleagues have organized everything from official government resolutions to playful scavenger hunts, trivia games, networking games to a chocolate coined crash course in basic procurement. Enjoy…It’s all about you!
