It’s Spring! The days are getting longer, and I hope you are enjoying the longer evenings and the opportunity to get out and walk, bike, garden, or whatever activity that interests you!
We just wrapped up Procurement Month – the NIGP motto this year was “Celebrate what you do today and every day because no matter the circumstance, public procurement professionals… Procure On!” I was excited to see that the National Lieutenant Governor’s Association passed a resolution recognizing public procurement as an “essential function of government” stating “state and local governments everywhere are supported by a highly qualified and dedicated procurement staff who demonstrate professionalism on all levels and understand the importance of the work they perform”. It is so validating to have another organization recognize the value of your profession!
