Virtual Procurement Conference for Chapter Members



We are excited for this event. We have invited the vendor community to join this conference. While this is not a Reverse Trade Show where we will have one on ones with vendors and networking sessions, we will have procurement topics where we can discuss different subjects with the vendors! This is an unprecedented learning opportunity where we can build better relationships with our vendors and help the vendors help us succeed! Please remember that this will be our last procurement training opportunity until the EdPAC Buyers Conference in November.  


Because of this event, we are going to be able to sponsor a scholarship to attend the next NIGP Pathways course hosted by our chapter. This scholarship will be open to those who are interested and who attend the training (another great incentive to attend!).  


The current course topics include:  

  • Responding to RFPs 
  • Procurement 101 
  • Ethics in Public Procurement 
  • Benefits of Cooperative Contracts 
  • Procurement with K-12 
  • Negotiating with Public Procurement 
  • How to get/ give feedback and the Protest Process 
  • Procurement Code
