The Journal of Public Procurement (JoPP) seeks to further the understanding of public procurement by exploring theories and practices of public procurement keyed to:
- Functional areas, including but not limited to procurement policy, procurement strategic planning and scheduling, contract formation, contract administration, evaluation, and procurement methods and techniques;
- Substantive areas such as government procurement laws and regulations, procurement economics and politics, and procurement ethics; and
- Topical issues such as e-Procurement, procurement transparency, and green procurement.
JoPP covers not only procurement at the federal, state and local government levels in the United States and Canada, but also government procurement in developed and developing nations. It will include research studies, narrative essays, exemplar cases–both good or bad–from past experiences, commentaries, book reviews, and occasionally, reprints of informative published government reports.
