Klopp appointed UI director of purchasing

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- John S. Klopp has been appointed director of purchasing for the University of Iowa.

The new director has been with the purchasing department for 13 years. He was involved in the development of the UI's procurement card program, which has provided ease of purchase for low cost items and has resulted in reduced paperwork. He has also led teams from State Board of Regents institutions to develop improved purchasing contracts.

Klopp is a member of the National Association of Education Buyers and will become president of the Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas region of that organization in 1999. He is currently a member of the regional executive board and serves as chair of the regional NAEB editorial board committee. He has published many articles in the NAEB Bulletin and Journal.

Klopp is a graduate of the UI with a bachelor's degree in theatre.
