About Us

The Coastal Carolina Association of Governmental Purchasing Officials became an official organization on January 1, 1978. The first meeting was held in Charleston on January 17, 1978. The name of the organization was changed to the South Carolina Association of Governmental Purchasing Officials in late 1979. The association has continued to grow since its inception in 1978. Today's membership stands at over 600 members from all areas of governmental purchasing.

2017 SCAGPO CHARITABLE PROJECT CONTINUES!!!

SCAGPO is not giving up!  SCAGPO’s Board voted to extend the Charitable Project involving the Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired in order to reach the goal of purchasing the new vision screener.  Our membership has raised $1,139 so far, but we are aiming to raise $1,861 more in order to reach the original goal.  Will you please consider contributing to this amazing cause?  No gift if too small or too large.  If we were all to contribute a little something, we would reach our goal in no time.

As a thank you to those contributing to this project, SCAGPO is providing additional incentives to those that were willing to help work towards the goal for the new vision screener.  Those giving any time in September and October will be placed in a drawing for either “SCAGPO swag”/merchandise or a free SCAGPO quarterly training. 

You can access the link for giving the gift of sight by clicking HERE 

Thank you for participating!
