The Center for Advanced Purchasing Studies (CAPS) is a program jointly sponsored by Arizona State University and NAPM. CAPS was founded in 1986 with the mission of conducting and publishing advanced research work concerning issues that are reshaping the purchasing and supply management profession. Although it was conceived as a partnership between a major professional organization and a major research university, CAPS has always been a coalition of the partners and corporate donors. These partners and donors constitute a 22-person Board of Trustees who work with the CAPS Director to set CAPS' policies and overall research direction. The NAPM President, Executive Vice President, and the NAPM Educational Resources Committee Chair are members of the Board of Trustees.
