Herndon, VA – NIGP: The Institute for Public Procurement and the UK Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply (CIPS) today jointly announce the release of three additional global Public Procurement Practices: Developing Evaluation Criteria; Outsourcing; and Technology in Public Procurement.
As part of a larger shared initiative to define and formalize global professional standards for government procurement officials, the release of these practices brings to 17 the body of standardized practices providing high-level guidance across government procurement activities.
Public entities at all levels of government perform many of the same procurement activities, yet their methodologies and outcomes differ. Reflecting on the importance of a body of professional standards for public procurement, David Noble, CIPS’ Chief Executive Officer observed, “Establishing a broad base of professional practices provides the common operating reference for practitioners and an evaluative resource for the general public to measure the procurement practices of their governments.”
NIGP’s Chief Executive Officer, Rick Grimm, added, “Historically, the specific practices of a profession are closely held or are otherwise difficult to discover. By contrast, professionals in public procurement value the fundamental nature of transparency in government practice. We publish these Practices with the intent to serve the professional needs of the government procurement community, while simultaneously serving the public’s need to assure their governments’ appropriate stewardship of tax-based revenues.”
NIGP and CIPS will continue to jointly develop and release additional Practices over the coming 18 months and beyond. The CIPS-NIGP partnership intends to release a total of 30 Practices by the end of June 2013. The core foundation of 30 Practices and those that follow will be maintained through an ongoing review and development process to ensure that the body of Practices remains relevant and supports the needs of government procurement practitioners over time.
The Practices for Public Procurement are founded upon the Values of Public Procurement necessary to preserve the public trust, protect the public interest, and ensure fairness for the public good. Those Values are: Accountability, Ethics, Impartiality, Professionalism, Service, and Transparency.
Join us October 18, 2012 for a Performance Based Contracting Webinar. Presented by Stephen Gordon, Ph.D., FNIGP, CPPO, Old Dominion University, Dept. of Urban Studies and Public Administration, Norfolk, VA.
Many public entities use performance-based contracting to set up goods, services, and construction contracts that optimize value, mitigate risk, and benefit from fresh ideas and creative solutions that traditional contracting strategies blocked. When an entity issues a performance-based RFP, it does not prescribe how the good should be made, how the service should be provided, or how the construction project should be built. Instead, the entity sets forth in the RFP the outcomes it is seeking to achieve, and asks prospective offerers to respond with a proposal that tells the entity how the proposer would achieve those outcomes. The public entity awards the proposal that offers the best solution, based on the evaluation criteria set forth in the RFP. Of course, it is not feasible to use performance-based contracting for every acquisition. If you are interested in adopting this proven practice for your entity, attend this webinar.
At the end of this webinar students will be able to:
Define performance based contracting
Identify solicitations that would benefit from performance based contracting
Identify the key elements of a performance based RFP
Receive credit for continuing education!
Contact hours: 1 (Contact hour awarded based on use of First and Last Name at Log In)
