Lindsey recently completed his year as president of the Virginia Association of Governmental Purchasing, representing more than 16,000 public purchasers on an international basis. The award won by Lindsey is based on "significant contributions to the advancement of the purchasing profession and professional development," the spokeswoman said.
Lindsey has spent 40 years in public procurement management, recommending legislative improvements in governmental purchasing to the General Assembly and speaking to and participating in the Special Joint General Laws Subcommittee on issues around procurement legislation, the spokeswoman said.
Gloucester Finance Director Nickie Champion said Lindsey "has been a tremendous resource and is so willing to exchange ideas, experiences and share expert advice on purchasing problems and procedures. He is an advocate for uniform competitive purchasing laws and active in developing and promoting simplified standards and specifications for governmental buying."
