Annual Performance Measures

White Papers
The State Procurement Office is proud to announce that we have earned the prestigious 2011 "Achievement of Excellence in Procurement " award from the National Purchasing Institute. 
This award is designed to recognize organizational excellence in state, local and non-profit public procurement.  Standardize criteria are used to measure the innovation, professionalism, productivity, e-procurement and leadership attributes of the procurement organization and these criteria are evaluated by an independent committee made up of procurement professionals from around the nation.  
Oregon now joins a small group of other states who have been acknowledged by this honor.  
SPO will accept the award in September during the annual meeting of the National Association of State Procurement Officers.
The State Procurement Office partners with state and local agencies to create a thriving marketplace that is fair, open and flexible.
With that in mind, each of the SPO Programs are comprised of experienced staff that are dedicated to providing knowlegable and professional services that help guide Oregon's procurement methods and practices into the future.
