Enabling Regulations & Compliance
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.
Like all things, the practices of public procurement professionals are regulated based on the common, statutory, and administrative laws that bind and protect the responsibilities of public entities across North America. Practitioners must be empowered to not only identify and define those terms commonly associated with the legal profession but also be able to describe and apply the predominant categories of law within the larger function. NIGP’s Enabling Regulations & Compliance course creates a dedicated learning experience where students leave with the ability to:
•Identify and define public procurement legal terms, concepts, and principles..
•Describe how the three categories of law—the common law, legislative/statutory law, and administrative law—apply to public procurement.
•Apply basic legal concepts and principles to practical public procurement situations..
