Purchasing Agencies

Your entity is cordially invited to participate in the KAPPP Chapter of the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing’s Reverse Vendor Fair.  This is a great opportunity for you to expand your vendor base, discover new businesses and products, and make other agency/entity contacts!  We ask that you contact representatives from area firms and businesses that you do business with or are interested in doing business with public entities. It’s anticipated that company’s small to large offering a wide variety of commodities and services will be attending seeking information and contacts. 

There is no cost to your agency!  Please join us to share in this unique opportunity with your vendors!

You do not need to be a member of KAPPP or NIGP to participate…BUT…if you’d like to join, we would LOVE for you to do so!  The educational and networking opportunities are amazing!  If interested, please contact Linda Kelly at [email protected] or go to the KAPPP store at  both individual and organizational memberships are available.
