ODU’s School of Public Service offers a Graduate Certificate in Public Procurement and Contract Management (GCPPCM). The GCPPCM program provides individuals working in public procurement and contract management and those considering a career in this rewarding field with the insights and competencies required for success. The program has been accredited by the Global Standards Board (GSB) of the International Federation of Procurement and Supply Management (IFPSM), and is the first graduate level program in public procurement and contract management to achieve this distinction. The GCPPCM program is built on best practices in strategic public procurement and contract management – best practices that can be adopted or adapted for use in any level or type of governmental or nonprofit organization. Individuals who work for organizations that contract with governments and non-profits also pursue the GCPPCM.
This online graduate certificate program provides the skills and tools to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of procurement and contract management in public-sector organizations. Anyone in a governmental, nonprofit, or other organization involved in or with acquisition, procurement, or contract management can benefit from pursuing the GCPPCM – no matter whether their position title includes the words acquisition, procurement, purchasing, or contract management. Public officials who are participants or stakeholders in acquisition, procurement, purchasing, or contract management – including senior executives, departmental managers, program managers, project managers, engineers, budget and finance officials, and planners — can gain valuable knowledge and insights by taking the courses in the GCPPCM program.
The courses in the GCPPCM program are for-credit, graduate-level courses. They can be taken on a non-degree seeking basis or as electives in ODU’s MPA degree program, ODU’s MBA degree program, and ODU’s engineering management graduate degree programs.
