About SPO and Government Contracting
The SPO has four segments: administration, procurement, inventory management and surplus property management. The State Procurement Office (SPO) program's mission is to promote economy,efficiency, effectiveness, and impartiality in procurement for State and county governments; and efficiency, effectiveness and stewardship in inventory management and surplus property management in an open, fair and transparent process.
Procurement Officers, Department Heads, have been delegated authority from the Administrator of the SPO in his capacity as the Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) of the Executive Branch. These Procurement Officers are a critical extension of the SPO.
