Description

A functional necessity of the procurement manager is the ability not only to develop but also to implement innovative solutions within the procurement function. As such, procurement professionals must be capable and ready to employ strategic decisions, theory, and management practices that can capture and improve upon the larger entity’s initiative.

Key Benefits to Learner

  • Assess opportunities to improve performance of the entity’s procurement function.
  • Create policies designed to ensure strategic alignment of procurement procedures throughout a public entity.
  • Create structure to capture operational and financial improvements within the entity as the result of procurement strategy.

Delivery Format

Zoom Virtual Learning Event
Attendance is mandatory and required for successful course completion. The Zoom meeting link and login information is distributed via email at the start of the course.

In this instructor-led environment, learners interact with a cohort of their peers over a set period. The course experience is built around experiential learning, or “learning by doing,” empowering learners through practical application of real-life tasks while tapping into the experience of both peers and an NIGP-certified facilitator. As part of course registration, students receive a workbook including job aids, practical application exercises, and case studies designed to promote critical thinking and immediate, post-course application of lessons.

Target Audience

This course is targeted to individuals who meet or exceed the following professional demographics: 

  • Mid-level public procurement and central warehouse professionals who serve as senior buyers, managers, directors, or equivalent functions within their respective entities. 
  • Non-procurement managers and supervisors who either provide procurement functions that support entity programs under delegated authority, or who already have a good understanding of basic procurement principles but wish to get more in-depth, hands-on training. 
  • Professionals who are employed by local governing entities and special authorities (such as K-12 and higher education, publicly owned utilities, transportation providers, and other publicly funded or created entities) who either serve within or manage the procurement function.
  • Supplier managers and supervisors seeking to understand the public procurement function from a more in-depth holistic level, including the policies, standards, and procedures by which public entities must function.
