About the Mission Statement
Two central themes provide the fundamental foundation for all activities of the Section of Public Contract Law the personal, professional growth of members and the sound development of the law relating to procurement at all levels of government. These two themes are captured in the Section's Mission Statement.
In adopting this mission, the Officers and Council of the Section were keenly aware that each theme can be most effectively pursued through Section activities which foster and encourage a diverse membership, broad opportunities for members to contribute in their own way to Section activities, and open paths for members to participate and to advance, if and as they wish, in the development of the Section.
The Section's goal is simple, yet ambitious: to be the most reliable, most respected nationwide source of balanced, unbiased, positive recommendations for improving the law relating to procurement (broadly defined) at all levels of government. Because of its unique position as a national organization composed of lawyers and associates from government, corporations, and law firms, the Section has an extraordinary opportunity and a duty to work for improvements to the procurement process. To meet this opportunity, the Section is trying continuously to create an atmosphere in which the interests of all participants in the procurement process are heard, understood, and incorporated in Section proposals and activities.
