Secretary Jennifer Hyde, NIGP-CPP, CPPO

Jennifer has been working in public procurement for 11 years and has been a member of both FAPPO and NIGP throughout that period. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh, and her master’s degree in Aeronautical Science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Jennifer has achieved both NIGP-CPP and CPPO certifications.

Jennifer is a proud Air Force veteran, having spent eight years in command and control of nuclear weapons (yes, she once had her “finger on the button”), and is a member of the Next Generation Veterans of Indian River County. Working in this zero error career field has taught her to quickly digest information and be decisive.  She also worked for nearly 10 years for a consulting engineering firm, authoring and designing statements of qualifications and proposals, and planning staff and client appreciation events. This experience enables her to view procurements from the vendor’s perspective, to consider multiple goals and opinions in decisions, and to take the lead in planning various types of events.

Jennifer has been the Purchasing Manager for Indian River County for eight and a half years, during which time she has created a professional and positive work environment, and developed a dedicated and skilled team, in support of the Board of County Commissioners departments, as well as several of the other County constitutional offices.

Jennifer is excited about the opportunity to serve as Secretary, and contribute directly to FAPPO and its future, as she sees it as a vital organization for both the profession and the public.  

Jennifer, her husband, and 12-year old twins live in Vero Beach, where she enjoys running, cooking, and listening to music.
