The Achievement of Excellence in Procurement Award (AEP) is earned by public
and non-profit organizations that obtain a high score based on standardized criteria.
All sizes and types of public and non-profit organizations have been successful
applicants. Counties, cities, school districts, states, special districts, and universities,
both public and private, are eligible. The judging criteria are designed as
benchmarks of procurement excellence and measure:

• Innovation
• Professionalism
• Productivity
• Leadership
• e-Procurement


You Have to Show Off Your Best Practices to Win

Tooting your own horn is difficult. However, with the AEP program, the most
prominent professional procurement associations are recognizing your organization’s
performance. This program encourages the development of excellence as well as
continued organizational improvement to earn the award annually. The award is
received by all that attain a minimum score of 100 on a rating of standardized criteria.
The evaluation is conducted by an independent committee.


Get Started Now!

In order to receive consideration for the award, organizations are required to
submit a detailed application with supporting documentation.
Review the criteria in the application and determine if your procurement organization
meets these requirements. Your organization needs to score 100 points. There is a
“self-scoring sheet” in the application. If you are at 100 points or only slightly above,
it is highly recommended that you again score your organization and be very objective.
Almost all first-time applicants have points deducted.
It is also recommended that you contact a previous winner (a list of all recipients
is posted on the AEP website) to discuss the application process.
