The Manatee County Procurement Division has been awarded the prestigious 24th Annual Achievement of Excellence in Procurement (AEP) Award for 2019 from the National Procurement Institute, Inc. (NPI).

The AEP Award is earned by public and non-profit agencies that demonstrate a commitment to procurement excellence. This annual program recognizes procurement organizations that embrace innovation, professionalism, productivity, leadership, and e-procurement and encompasses 33 different criteria. The AEP program encourages the development of excellence, as well as, continued organizational improvement to earn the award.
