I was, like many in our industry, delighted when ThomasNet and ISM teamed up to launch the Annual Top 30 Under 30 program. I even did a radio segment on it shortly after the campaign was launched in early 2014. By focusing on a group of 30 “rising”supply chain stars who, as the name suggests, […]

Based on a 2013 study by Charity Navigator, and taking into account the regional differences relating to cost of living, the average (CEO) salary is $148,250 . . .  In the spirit of fairness, I also wanted to see if there was any difference between the above referenced overall average, and the nonprofit category relating to the […]

In yesterday’s post In A Quest For Context, NIGP and ISM Comparison Raise Very Interesting Questions, I expressed an interest in having a greater understanding of how the NIGP has been able to “buck the ISM money losing trend these past 3 years”?

There is a saying that the numbers don’t lie, so lets go right to the numbers and then analyze what they really mean. In the year ending 2012, here are the numbers for both the NIGP and ISM* per their respective 990 submissions. By the way I referenced these returns, as they were the most recent in […]

They are our State’s go to place for public procurement guidance and training. Now NASPO doesn’t have a ‘consulting’ arm but NIGP does! So let’s go […]

Editor’s Note: There were any number of witty (or supposedly witty – I will let you decide) introductions that crossed my mind when I first read this post by Kelly Barner. Beyond the catchy “Rome wasn’t built in a day” used in her title, there is “when in Rome” because there is certainly something that […]
