For the ninth year in a row, Pima County has received the Achievement of Excellence in Procurement Award.

Only 43 of the 3,007 counties in the United States received the award by the National Purchasing Institute.

Pima County achieved a score in the top 15 percent of all scores earned by 2013 applicants.

Established in 1995, the award is intended to measure innovation, professionalism, technological advancement, ethical standards and leadership attributes. Applicants received scores based on the quality of their vendor training, for example, the certification of their professional staff and the provision of electronic purchase orders.

In all, 16 governments in Arizona received recognition.

Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry thanked Procurement staff for their transparency and productivity.

“This award substantiates the professional approach taken by the County to follow fiscally sound and ethically superior standards in procuring goods and services with public funds.”

The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
