NASPO currently partners with 17 Strategic Partners and 9 Academic Partners to form strong relationships with existing procurement organizations and continually elevate the public procurement profession.

Peter Korolyk and Delbert Singleton

NASPO’s Internship Program began in summer 2017 when NASPO gathered a group of CPOs and academic partners prior to the inaugural Academic Forum to discuss the possibility of a national internship program.

The program has grown considerably since it started, and now serves an essential role in generating interest in the public procurement profession.

The application process for interested states will begin in the fall semester. All CPOs will be sent an internship agreement letter and given several weeks to determine if their team would like to participate in this program.
NASPO will announce a date and time for online applications. Only states who have submitted CPO signed agreement letters can apply.
The internship grants will be given on a first come, first serve basis by region.
The total number of funded internships will depend on the annual budget, as approved by the Board of Directors.

The students from academic partner schools are impressive! They come from top-tier Supply Chain programs across the country- the closest field of study to public procurement.

Since the program’s inception, we have honed the process and continue to improve for both the participating states and their students.
