Meet the Staff – Scott Gropp

Employee Spotlight

Tell us about your background.

I am originally from Indiana and began my legal career with a judicial clerkship after graduating from Indiana University’s Maurer School of Law. I became interested in the contract management/procurement space after moving to Seattle in 2014. I enjoy that it lets me use my legal background while being more involved in the daily operations of a business.

My husband (a former Angeleno) and I moved to Los Angeles in 2021. After moving, I began searching for an opportunity that would allow me to become more involved in serving my local community, which led me to CPA.

What responsibilities do you have here at Clean Power Alliance?

As the Strategic Sourcing Manager, I manage the procurement of goods and services to support a wide variety of business requirements.

I work with business leads to identify procurement needs and facilitate key aspects of the solicitation process, including notifying potential vendors of procurement opportunities, holding bidder conferences, responding to vendor questions, evaluating offers, and managing the contract negotiation process with successful bidders.

What are you most proud of in working here at CPA?

I’m proud to be part of an amazing team that is passionate about the work they do and dedicated to truly supporting a just and sustainable clean energy future.
