Each year, NIGP recognizes members who have achieved hallmark status in the eyes of their peers. Members may nominate a peer for an award or self-nominate. The NIGP Member Awards are designed to showcase your exemplary service and outstanding accomplishments and contributions to your entity, the Institute and the profession.
The criteria for the NIGP Individual Member Awards are based on the six Values and Guiding Principles of Public Procurement:
Accountability – Taking ownership and being responsible to our members and other stakeholders for our actions to provide a means for engagement, continuous development and success of both individuals and agencies.
Ethics – Acting in a manner true to these values to preserve the member’s trust with thoughtful, collaborative decision-making and actions that align with the goals, success and ideals of NIGP, and ensure fairness for the public good.
Impartiality – Ensuring conscious acceptance of diverse members, ideas and solutions that demonstration innovation and socially and ethically responsible advancement of public procurement education and best practices.
Professionalism – Upholding high standards of performance and ethical behavior to balance diverse member engagement, needs and interests.
Service – Obligation to assist members, stakeholders, and NIGP to support the profession and its members, through collaborating and education to improve government procurement methods.
Transparency – Easily accessible and understandable information, policies and processes to demonstrate responsible commitment to moving the profession forward.
We’ve simplified and streamlined the nomination process and new this year, the application for Procurement Manager of the Year (PMOY) and Procurement Specialist of the Year (PSOY) has been revised to reflect how individuals demonstrate and exemplify the Values and Guiding Principles of Public Procurement.
