The Inter-American Network on Government Procurement (INGP), is an initiative of the American countries constituted as a regional technical cooperation mechanism, composed by governmental institutions, headed by the national directors, who have the highest responsibility regarding the regulation, management and modernization of government procurement in the 32 countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, who handle 10 to 20% of their countries GDP.
The President shall serve for a period of one year, renewable for an additional year and shall be elected by the Annual Conference by all members of the Network. All representatives of member countries are eligible to assume the office of President. The candidate receiving the most votes from all members present at the Network Annual Conference shall be appointed President. The vote is secret.
Each member of the Executive Committee shall be elected for a period of one year and may be re-elected for one additional year. 

During the Annual Conference, a period of time will be assigned for each geographic area to elect its representative to the Executive Committee, who shall be the candidate with the most votes among all the corresponding countries in that geographical area.
The role of the Technical Secretariat for the INGP is fulfilled by the Secretariat of Political Affairs (SPA) of the Organization of American States, OAS, through the Electronic Government Program of the Department for Effective Public Management (DGPE).
The network had a gradual development process, beginning with its first meetings held since 2003 between the heads of national offices and with programs to modernize the process of government procurement in the Americas. Initially, a network of Inter-American E-Government Procurement was created in September 2004 and later, in June 2005, it became the Inter-American Network on Government Procurement (INGP) to expand the work themes and include other initiatives related to Government Procurement in the Americas.
