  1. Social Responsibility

    A critical role that procurement practitioners serve is benefitting the population within a jurisdiction through economic stimulation and sustainability practices. Practitioners must understand how to properly engage Disadvantaged Business Enterprises in procurements. Also, practitioners must understand how to employ sustainability efforts in ways that can benefit their entity. 

     

    In order to successfully earn a digital badge, learners must:

     
    • Build, grow and optimize Disadvantaged Business Enterprises programs using different methods,
    • Incorporate environmental sustainability efforts in their everyday procurements,
    • Support the local economy through the inclusion of work with local businesses, and
    • Mitigate challenges, which may occur through service contracts because of labor issues. 
     
    Course 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.
