Darlene Morrow of the Procurement Service Center (PSC) was named Buyer of the Year for 2010 by the Rocky Mountain Governmental Purchasing Association (RMGPA) on March 18 during the association's spring conference in Boulder.

Morrow was evaluated in three areas of contribution: to the university, to the association and to the National Institute for Governmental Purchasing (NIGP) and the procurement profession. The honor recognizes dedication and professionalism.

Morrow has been a purchasing agent with PSC since 2001. She is responsible for managing procurements related to official functions, audio-visual and photography equipment, paper products, and printing/publications. She also was the purchasing agent for numerous strategic sourcing procurements.

"We at the PSC have recognized Darlene's excellent qualities for a long time," said Sandy Hicks, assistant vice president and chief procurement officer. "It's nice to know that others, too, recognize her talents and commitment to her profession. We're very proud of her."

RMGPA is the Colorado and Wyoming affiliate of NIGP. The association's goal is to provide membership with the education, professional development and technical assistance required to secure the public trust through the promotion of excellence and effectiveness in public purchasing.
