Institute for Supply Management

The Institute for Supply Management is a not-for-profit[?] United States association for the benefit of the purchasing[?] and supply management[?] profession, particularly in the areas of education and research.

It was established in 1915 as the National Association of Purchasing Management. In May 2001 the membership of NAPM voted to change the association's name to the Institute for Supply Management.

ISM publishes the monthly publication Inside Supply Management[?], which includes the purchasing surveys Manufacturing ISM Report on Business[?] and the Non-Manufacturing ISM Report on Business, which debuted June 1998.
