Could what happened at the NIGP happen at any association? by Jon Hansen

Posted on April 15, 2015 by


Our Procurement Insights EU Editor Colin Cram wrote a very interesting post on the growing NIGP creditability crisis that is now known has #CodeGate.

Based on more than 30 years in the public sector, Colin’s observations are at once insightful and troubling.

Has more people become aware of the NIGP crisis, the following question is being raised with greater frequency; could the same type of scenario arise within other associations such as CIPS? Especially in relation to awarding business and concessions.  In this regard, my most recent post Could Periscope’s Deal With Parthenon Be Challenged By NIGP Code Customers? would certainly serve as a good starting point for a lively discussion.

To enable you to better answer this question, we have created the NIGP #CodeGate archive through which you can access my entire series of posts. Simply select the NIGP #CodeGate pull down menu option at the top of this blog, or by clicking on the NIGP #CodeGate Post Archive box in the upper right hand corner of the main page index.
