The work of public procurement is no longer a clerical function performed independently by various people throughout different agencies or departments within a government entity. This class provides an overview of the ever-changing profession by identifying fundamental concepts that will affect procurement in the public sector.

Join us for this Introduction to Public Procurement class on June 20 - 22, intended for individuals interested in an overview of procurement functions for the purpose of understanding the basic elements that underlie all areas of public procurement. Any government employee who has delegated authority to purchase goods and services on behalf of the government should take advantage of this class. Discussion and content is relevant for those outside the profession who are also impacted by the public procurement environment.

The class will be taught by David Nash, CPPO, CPPB, who had a long career in government procurement and is probably best known for his "Question of the Day," a service he provides for free to those preparing for their CPPB or CPPO certification. He is a 2013 recipient of the "Spirit of NIGP" award and currently serves as a NIGP Chapter Ambassador for Area 5.

Cost for the course is $715 for NIGP Members or $915 for non-members. Register at least 30 days prior to the class to avoid a $50 late fee.
