Government Procurement joins forces with NIGP
The first print and digital issue under the new partnership agreement will be published in late June and also will be available at the NIGP Forum and Products Exposition, to be held July 26-30 in Charlotte, N.C.
The alliance will enable Government Procurement to reach a wider audience, including all of the nearly 16,000 NIGP members. Total estimated circulation will be approximately 28,000. Government Procurement and NIGP also will cooperate on development of creative concepts and added editorial coverage for the procurement community.

Our mutual effort will help strengthen the public procurement profession,” added Rick Grimm, CEO of the NIGP. “Through broader reach and exposure to the rich content offered in Government Procurement, practitioners at all levels of government will gain access to new resources and expertise.”
