Welcome to Procurement Pulse!
Procurement by federal, state, and local governments in the United States amounts to $7 trillion dollars of annual spend, and state procurement makes up a significant portion of that number. With a dollar amount that contains that many zeros (twelve of them, to be exact), it’s not hard to see why discussing and sharing ideas on best practices and emerging issues in state procurement is of utmost importance.
NASPO’s Procurement Pulse aims to be your go-to resource for emerging and horizon issues in state procurement. NASPO staff and members will be bringing you engaging and relevant content on a myriad of procurement issues, including, but not limited to NASPO’s Top Ten Priorities for State Procurement and Top 3 Horizon Issues. Check out these key rankings for 2018 straight from state Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs) at the bottom of this post.
NASPO is dedicated to advancing public procurement through leadership, excellence, and integrity, and Procurement Pulse is the newest way to achieve our mission of helping our members achieve success as public procurement leaders in their states through promotion of best practices, education, professional development, research, and innovative procurement strategies.
