Employees come into our profession from an array of backgrounds, commonly without procurement-specific education or training. Yet they are expected to play a public role that demands both in-depth knowledge of detailed policies and procedures and the soft skills necessary to respond to sensitive situations. This creates a need for specific, life-long training, education, and credentialling (e.g. professional certification) that relate to standard staff positions.
In response to these needs, NIGP is now offering customized, complementary individual and organizational professional education concierge services.
