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.
As stewards of the public trust and the party responsible for ensuring
the value of the taxpayers’ dollar is obtained, public procurement
professionals must consistently strive to ensure the ethical and legal
expenditure of the entity’s funds. Key to this responsibility is the
establishment of cross-departmental agreements based on the characteristics and
quality of purchased products through the use of standards. NIGP’s Standardization course creates a dedicated learning experience where students leave with the ability to:
•Analyze the requirements of various internal stakeholders in order to adopt one set of specifications for commonly procured commodities.
•Design contracts that satisfy the shared needs of multiple internal stakeholders to promote efficiency of the procurement function.
