Welcome to the Capital Area Purchasing Association (CAPA)!

CAPA is the premier organization for public procurement professionals in and around the heart of Virginia.  Here, procurement experts collaborate, learn, and share ideas in all areas of government purchasing to help maximize taxpayer spend and sustain the Commonwealth's financial stability.

Our members represent procurement-related careers in state and local government, higher education, and other public bodies across Central Virginia.  CAPA is a nonprofit, nonpartisan chapter of the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP).

Thanks for visiting our site, and for helping us "Capitalize Purchasing Professionals"!
