NASPO is made up of the directors of the central purchasing offices in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the territories of the United States. As a State Director, you have access to the Directors Community in our online networking tool NASPO Network. If you have not received your welcome packet from NASPO or would like to contact someone regarding how to get involved and access the resources available to you, please contact Mary Sloan.
Each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the territories of the US constitute NASPO's membership base. Each state director serves as the primary NASPO contact, however NASPO can also provide a multitude of resources to you as a member of a state procurement department.
In addition to the materials on naspo.org, we have a repository of members only documents available on the NASPO Network in the All Members Group. The Network also serves as a robust member-to-member communication tool to ask questions of your peers and receive feedback on best practices. To be added to NASPO's database, please reach out to your state director or contact Mary Sloan.
Associate Membership is available for procurement personnel from other countries outside of the United States as well as procurement personnel of state agencies independent of the central procurement office. More information on Associate Membership eligibility along with the online application are available here.
NASPO does not offer corporate membership. However, as a private sector supplier, you have the opportunity to attend NASPO's How to Market to State Governments Meeting each spring. This conference brings state procurement officials together with companies large and small to discuss how to do business with the states and form successful partnerships. Details on the How to Market to State Governments Meeting can be found on NASPO's events page.
