Procurement professionals, our members, are entrusted with public funds and tasked with making informed decisions for all purchasing for every project. Our role at NIGP is to foster connections and nurture relationships between our members and the supplier community.

As a supplier, you need to get in front of this critical group of decision makers to offer your products and services and demonstrate your value proposition that solves our members' procurement needs and challenges.
