The PPRC ensures that the policies we enact to serve the short and long term needs of the public procurement profession continue to be the basis for making decisions that affect the Center. We keep our mission in focus while paying attention to the details of managing our fiscal and other resources with care, and providing services that reflect the vision, mission and values. In performing these duties, we foster collaboration and respect for different points of view, and encourage extensive and effective participation from those affected by our work. We make timely choices that reflect fairness and a good understanding of the impacts that alternative proposals have upon the procurement community, faculty, and students. These decisions are carried out effectively to address the professional, intellectual, and training needs of those we serve.
To identify and support the education, research and service needed to advance the public procurement profession, the Mission of the PPRC is:
