County earns national procurement award

Sarasota County earns national award for procurement excellence

Post Date:07/21/2017 3:15 PM

SARASOTA COUNTY - Sarasota County has earned the 2017 Achievement of Excellence in Procurement (AEP) award from the National Procurement Institute (NPI) for the third consecutive year.

This achievement honors organizational excellence in public and non-profit procurement, provides benchmarks for continued excellence and increases awareness of public procurement as a profession.

"This accomplishment reflects the hardworking, professional efforts of Sarasota County's procurement team, the strength of our internal processes, and the board's ongoing commitment to transparency and stewardship of public dollars," said Sarasota County Administrator Tom Harmer.

NPI established the AEP in 1995, with criteria designed to measure innovation, professionalism, productivity and leadership attributes of an organization's procurement practices. The AEP Evaluation Committee, which measures those criteria, is comprised of procurement officials from around the country.

Sarasota County will officially be awarded at NPI's 49th Annual Conference and Products Exposition in October.

"We pride ourselves on practicing responsible procurement, developing new procedures and providing the best service to the community. Its an honor to be recognized by those in the procurement profession," said Office of Financial Management Director Kim Radtke.
