Director Biography:

Bill is the Administrator for the Idaho Division of Purchasing. Bill began work with the State of Idaho in late 2008 and his duties include managing State Purchasing, Central Postal Services, State Records Center, Copy Center and the Federal Surplus Program. Idaho’s state purchasing group is a centralized purchasing organization, which oversees the policies and procedures of all personal property acquisitions for the state executive agencies. As approximately 60% of the states spend is in the service area, state purchasing has been working diligently with Arizona State University to improve service procurement methodologies around a best value process (Performance Information Procurement System). Upon graduation from the University of Idaho with a BS in Business,  Bill started his career as a CPA working for national accounting firms for 4 years. Bill is a former OEM and Supply Chain Manager, Hewlett-Packard Company. At HP, Bill managed planning, procurement/procurement engineering, design for manufacturability engineering, global supply chain development and several key global strategic relationships across Asia.
