[ARCHIVED] City’s Purchasing Office Earns Top Ranking for Outstanding Agency Award

The City of Petersburg’s Purchasing Office recently received recognition from the National Institute for Government Purchasing, Inc. (NIGP) for the ‘Outstanding Agency Accreditation Achievement Award’ (OA4).

The OA4 recognizes those agencies that lead the public procurement profession through the implementation of best practices. Agencies meeting the requirements are OA4 accredited for three years. The City’s Purchasing Office met stringent NIGP requirement in the following categories: Mission and Strategies, Organization, Authority and Responsibility, Standard and Professional Development, Best Practices, Audi and Evaluation, Cooperative Purchasing, Automated Purchasing Systems and Electronic Commerce.
