The Educational Procurement Journal, published by NAEP, is truly the voice for Procurement in Higher Education.  Starting with the first issue, procurement professionals leverage the Journal to convey solutions to higher education procurement challenges, publicize innovations, and communicate best practices to their colleagues.  Solutions providers also leverage this important platform to elevate awareness, share intelligence, and engage with the NAEP community.

We are extremely grateful to all of the distinguished organizations, whom through a solid commitment to the Higher Education market, have helped our community thrive.

I am writing to you today to tell you that the Educational Procurement Journal now has a new publishing partner—Apogee Publications.  We selected Apogee for their outstanding professionalism and their extensive expertise and experience in association publishing.  We are confident that the professionals at Apogee will provide you with exemplary service and together with our Member-driven editorial team; we will continue to deliver a top-quality publication in both print and digital formats.

Even with a strong commitment to Higher Education, your company’s solution may not be on Procurement’s radar.  Higher Education Institutions maintain vendor databases with an average of 5,000 companies or more, managed by Procurement.  3 out of 4 Procurement Professionals manage the buying process and more than half have final approval.**  If your company is not leveraging NAEP to rise above the noise, you are missing the most cost effective means of reaching the most influential group on campus.

During difficult economic times Procurement is even more visible and highly engaged.  In a recent study by the Aberdeen Report, Christine Deluca, Chief Procurement Officer for British Petroleum was quoted as saying, "… It’s time for procurement to be the hero." 
We couldn’t agree more.   And with our new partnership, we are making new opportunities for you to get the visibility and mind share you need for your products and services.

When a representative from Apogee contacts you, please consider allocating part of your advertising budget to actively participate in our publication.  If you’d like to contact Apogee’s Sales Manager about your ad right now, please contact
Kathleen Pishotta at 888.371.4933.

On behalf of NAEP and our Membership, thank you very much for your participation over the years.  We hope you will continue to build partnerships with our Members.  And, thanks again for your support of NAEP.
