MAPPO represents and promotes the Purchasing Professional as an essential contributor to the governmental function and vital to the well-being of our communities as watchdogs of public funds. Our members may perform under various titles and at different levels of responsibility, but our shared directive is to be sure our Cities, Towns and Agencies conduct legal and competitive procurements while maintaining ethics, quality, and savings in each and every purchase.
MAPPO imparts our message through participation in state appointed committees, communication with the Offices of the Attorney General and Inspector General, and collaboration with the Office of the State Purchasing Agent. In every effort, MAPPO brings your voice to the table and upholds the integrity of the profession by displaying the expert viewpoint you display every day.
MAPPO understands the challenges you face and represents you on legislative matters with respect to procurement. We also provide educational opportunities, resource sharing, and opportunities to network with professionals from all areas of public purchasing.
Please join us. We offer you a warm welcome and look forward to introducing you to new colleagues and friends.
Mary A. Delaney, MCPPO
