Fostering Stronger Relationships between Suppliers and Our Members

Educational Offerings for the Supplier Community

NIGP continues its quest to reimagine learning for public procurement. The supplier community plays a pivotal role to ensure successful outcomes for our members. The goal of NIGP is to foster stronger relationships between suppliers and our members—relationships built on mutual understanding, trust and respect for the unique challenges each side must contend with. To help achieve this, NIGP is launching two new supplier-focused educational offerings.
