Values and Guiding Principles

The Partnership champions the adoption of the Values and Guiding Principles (VGPs) of Public Procurement.

Over 80 government agencies and professional associations across the globe have already adopted the VGPs and the Partnership continues to promote them globally as fundamental to good procurement practice.

The establishment of a formalised, reference-able body of values and guiding principles is a milestone development for the public procurement profession. The Values and Guiding Principles provide organisations the foundation upon which to establish their professional identity and their professional practice.

Taxpayers must feel confident that their governments are spending in a manner that is principled, achieves best value and is transparent. Governments that embrace these Values and Guiding Principles – and actively reflect them in their procurement practices – let their communities know that they are supported by professionals committed to practices consistent with the values of good public stewardship.
