Who we are...

The association is organized for charitable and education

purposes and qualifies as exempt from Federal Income Tax under

Section 501(C) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as

amended. More specifically, such purposes include, but are not

limited to: the furtherance, preservation and education of the

public with respect to purchasing, especially as it relates to the

history and culture of the Indian Tribes of the United States. In

addition, the Association is organized to promote and stimulate

ongoing cooperation, communication, education and resource

development among Native American Organizations, IHS and

the BIA. The association provides opportunities for Native

Organizations to participate and learn about fair, open, equal,

loyal and competitive purchasing practices within the profession.

The National Native American Purchasing Association would like to take

this opportunity to Thank You for your participation in the conference.
