WELCOME

Since its establishment, the Southern New Jersey Chapter of NIGP has been dedicated to promoting professionalism and creditable purchasing methods. Its members represent cities, boroughs, townships, boards of education, utilities, authorities, colleges and parks, as well as county and state agencies.









The Director of the Division of Local Government Services has proposed amendments to rules pertaining to Qualified Purchasing Agents.  Proposed amendments to N.J.A.C. 5:34-5.1 and 5.2, together with the proposed repeal of 5:34-5.3, address the following:

- the course requirement for green product purchasing

- continuing education requirements (CEUs) for QPAs

- a grace period under certain circumstances for obtaining CEU credits

- the Director's discretion to waive minimum CEU hours under certain circumstances; and

- a fee for QPA certification renewals.

The full rule proposal can be viewed online at http://www.nj.gov/dca/divisions/dlgs/resources/rules_docs/PRN%202014-085%20(46%20NJR%20909(a)).pdf under the "Proposed Rules" section of the Division's webpage.  Comments on the rule proposal must be submitted no later than August 1, 2014 to: Jason R. Martucci, Esq. - Administrative Practice Officer - Division of Local Government Services - P.O. Box 803 - Trenton, New Jersey 08625-0803.  Comments may also be emailed to dlgs@dca.state.nj.us with the subject line "N.J.A.C. 5:34-5 Proposed Rule Amendments".
