Vision, Mission & Values

In 2014, the NASPO Board of Directors undertook a strategic planning initiative to guide the organization and help inform the leadership's decision making. Through a survey of state procurement officials, committee chairs and past leaders, many NASPO members contributed to the effort. The strategic plan, including five-year objectives and measurements, was presented to the membership at the 2014 Annual Conference. Since then, leaders, committees and NASPO staff have begun implementing the objectives and living the strategic priorities. Positive effects are being recognized throughout the NASPO organization.
