Miami Beach Procurement Department Earns Accreditation

The City of Miami Beach Procurement Department has been awarded the Quality Public Procurement Department accreditation by the National Institute for Governmental Procurement (NIGP) — the largest public procurement organization in the United States and Canada.

“We are very proud that our procurement department has been able to achieve this rigorous accreditation,” said Miami Beach City Manager Alina T. Hudak. “Only 5% of the 3,000 government agencies that are members of NIGP have earned this honor.”

The NIGP accreditation, which recognizes excellence in public procurement, is awarded to public procurement departments that have demonstrated their operations, practices and abilities are consistent with established best practices and standards.

NIGP was formed during World War II — largely through the efforts of then-New York City Mayor and U.S. Conference of Mayors President Fiorello LaGuardia — to elevate the purchasing profession, accelerate performance and make a positive difference in communities throughout the world.
