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

Donate Today And ABVI Wins But You Could Also Win....

The Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired (ABVI) is a worthwhile program bringing the gift of sight to people across the state.  SCAGPO is striving to help reach the $3000 goal for a must needed piece of equipment.  ABVI has been awarded a grant to partially fund the screener, but they need our help.  To be honest friends, we are not even close to the $3000 that is needed. 

Vision is something that many of us take for granted, but imagine what it would be to have the gift of sight taken away.  So with that, SCAGPO is providing incentives to those that will help us meet the goal of purchasing the equipment!!

All of those making contributions will be put into a drawing at each donation level for some great prizes! 

Donation Levels are:
