In 1999 the chapter officially changed its name to the Pennsylvania Public Purchasing Association and has a membership base that geographically extends throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Members are affiliated with purchasing at various levels of government, including State, City, County, Township, School Districts, State Police, Housing Authorities and Sewer Authorities. Within the Chapter, there are several co-operative purchasing groups as well.
