The Department of Property and Procurement, formerly the Department of Insular Affairs, was established under Title 33, Chapter 13.  The Department is committed to providing assistance to government departments and agencies in their efforts to acquire goods and services by utilizing a procurement system that is fair, prompt, quality-oriented, cost-efficient and most importantly, according to the law that ensures all Executive Branch departments and agencies are in compliance with the Procurement Standards of Purchasing.
