The dialogue is still at an early stage, pointed out Bola Afolabi, CIPS President, however, IPSA and CIPS have agreed to explore the development of a full service procurement institute for Southern Africa. 

“The primary objective and driver for this has been to meet an overwhelming demand from the market place for a full service professional body that can support and evolve the procurement profession at both individual and organisation levels”, said a statement of intent that accompanied the conference announcement.
