The City of University Park Purchasing Division earned the Achievement of Excellence in Procurement Award for 2019.
This award was established in 1995 by the National Purchasing Institute (NPI) to recognize the achievement of organizational excellence in public procurement. The award is achieved by those organizations that demonstrate excellence in procurement by obtaining a high score on rating of standardized criteria.
The program is designed to measure innovation, professionalism, e-procurement, productivity, and leadership attributes of the procurement function.
The City of University Park is one of only 67 cities in the U.S. and Canada to receive the 2019 award. The City has received the award for 19 consecutive years.
