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 Annual Conference. Since then, leaders, committees and NASPO staff have implemented the objectives and advancing the strategic priorities. Positive effects are being recognized throughout the NASPO organization. An annual report to the members is produced each year to ensure member engagement in the fulfillment of the strategic plan.
