Description

A critical role that procurement practitioners serve is the optimization of spending of taxpayer funds. Practitioners must understand how to provide strategic leadership to the spend analysis process.


Objectives

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

  • Determine if a spend analysis is needed.

  • Clarify reasons or needs for various purchases.

  • Investigate options for best value.


Intended Audience

This course is targeted to individuals who meet or exceed the following professional demographics: 

  • Mid-level public procurement and central warehouse professionals who serve as senior buyers, managers, directors, or equivalent functions within their respective entities.  
     
  • Non-procurement managers and supervisors who either provide procurement functions that support entity programs under delegated authority, or who already have a good understanding of basic procurement principles but wish to get more in-depth, hands-on training. 
     
  • Professionals who are employed by local governing entities and special authorities (such as K-12 and higher education, publicly owned utilities, transportation providers, and other publicly funded or created entities) who either serve within or manage the procurement function.
     
  • Supplier managers and supervisors seeking to understand the public procurement function from a more in-depth holistic level, including the policies, standards, and procedures by which public entities must function.
