The Procurement Insight Network

A community of professionals that believes in the power of PROCUREMENT TOGETHER



We recognize that as public procurement professionals, we are a powerful resource for our agencies and for the purchasing community as a whole. More than ever before - our experiences and insights can help colleagues from around the country to be their best. 

This movement aims to connect our community with shared insights - because procurement is most effective when we can lean on one another's experiences. We are at our best when we run PROCUREMENT TOGETHER.

Procurement professionals dedicate themselves – in some cases for their whole lives – to the careful stewardship of taxpayer dollars. Our shared purpose has yielded an incredible community.

And in the wake of new challenges – from more complex procurements, to supply chain disruptions, to meeting lofty MWBE spend goals, and more – that community is our greatest resource.

The Procurement Insight Network is a group that recognizes that we are our profession's strongest resource. With our shared insights and experiences , we are strongest when running PROCUREMENT TOGETHER!
