Principles and Practices for Public Procurement

A Principles and Practices supporting organization

In January 2012 Spikes Cavell became a supporting organization in NIGP's Principles and Practices of Public Procurement aimed at elevating public sector procurement, values and guiding principles.

NAEP is a Member-focused Association providing progressive knowledge management in strategic sourcing, supply chain, materials and logistics for procurement professionals. Since the 1920’s, NAEP has been the non-profit professional Association primarily dedicated to serving higher education purchasing officers in the U.S. and Canada. NAEP’s mission is to facilitate the development, exchange and practice of effective and ethical procurement principles and techniques within higher education and associated communities, through continuing education, networking, public information and advocacy. Currently, over 1,500 colleges and universities are Members.

Educational & Institutional Cooperative Service, Inc. is a not-for-profit buying cooperative established by members of the National Association of Educational Procurement (NAEP) to provide goods and services to members at the best possible value. The Cooperative is owned by its membership of more than 2,000 colleges, universities, K-12, hospitals, medical research institutions and hospital purchasing organizations located throughout the United States.

E&I Cooperative Purchasing, in collaboration with the purchasing community and NAEP, strives to be the primary conduit for inter-collegiate group purchasing activities by aggregating knowledge, spend and technology to lower costs for its Member Institutions and Business Partners.

"The spend analysis was something that was sorely needed at Tampa. Spikes Cavell and the Observatory are going to help us streamline in a lot of areas."
