In January 2020, the National Governor’s Association (NGA) signed on as a new NASPO Strategic Partner and immediately became a valued relationship during the pandemic. The NGA shares resources with NASPO and invited NASPO to speak with the Governors and their staff during briefings. Tim Blute, Director of the NGA Center for Best Practices recently joined NASPO for a podcast episode, scheduled to be released in June. The conversation centers around how the two associations can work together to combat the Coronavirus, as well as ways Chief Procurement Officers can work with their governors post-pandemic.
