fes­sional pub­lic pro­cure­ment as­so­ci­a­tions and or­ga­ni­za­tions, in­clud­ing the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of State Pro­cure­ment Of­fi­cials, the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Ed­u­ca­tional Pro­cure­ment, and the Na­tional In­sti­tute of Gov­ern­men­tal Pro­cure­ment. It is rec­og­nized as a gold stan­dard in the field of pub­lic pro­cure­ment.

“At­tain­ment of this award pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity to com­pare our pro­cesses against na­tion­ally rec­og­nized best prac­tices and we are very pleased with the out­come,” said Michael Barr, di­rec­tor of sup­port ser­vices for the school sys­tem. “The award demon­strates our over­all com­mit­ment to con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment and the use of ef­fec­tive pro­cure­ment strate­gies.”

“We are for­tu­nate to have such a ded­i­cated group of pro­fes­sion­als serv­ing in the dis­trict’s pro­cure­ment division,” said Dr. Den­nis Car­pen­ter, deputy su­per­in­ten­dent for op­er­a­tions for the school sys­tem. “Given that the com­mit­ment to ex­cel­lence of both Mr. Mike Barr and Mr. Greg Goins has been for­mally rec­og­nized by the Gov­ern­men­tal Pro­cure­ment As­so­ci­a­tion of Ge­or­gia in re­cent years, this most re­cent na­tional recog­ni­tion is demon­stra­tive of the up­ward pro­fes­sional pro­gres­sion I have grown to ex­pect from our pro­cure­ment division.”
