This guide is designed to support the evaluation of procurement office preparedness to support an emergency situation. An emergency generally means an extraordinary event which occurs with very little time to develop a unique concept of response for that event. This paper identifies issues to consider before, during and after a catastrophic event, highlights potential problem areas of which to be aware, and offers suggested best practices.

Statewide centralization and enhancing the strategic role of state central procurement have been front and center for many states. NASPO recognized statewide centralization as one of its top priorities for 2016.
This infographic report presents a quick overview of the main drivers for change towards centralization, reported successes, challenges and risk factors, based on information gathered through group interviews with chief procurement officers.
This publication recommends critical success areas and key metrics for state central procurement offices. NASPO identified four critical success areas and key performance indicators (KPIs) that the state central procurement organization should focus on to be successful. NASPO suggests using this limited number of metrics defined for each area as central to the success of the state central procurement office. We encourage each office to develop its own KPIs that are strategic, actionable, relevant, and in line with their statutory requirements, statewide strategy and organizational goals.
