Procurement within an institutional setting is unique. Although procurement practices of the commercial world are useful and must be understood by those who purchase for the educational community, specially adapted approaches are required for nonprofit institutions.

Tier III: Senior Professional is designed for the experienced procurement professional with more than eight years of experience in purchasing and/or management responsibility. The faculty will provide advanced training in areas of team skills, consensus building, decision-making, negotiation, contract management, conducting a complex RFP process and more.

There are only 20 seats available for this academy, so register for yours today! Breakfast and lunch will be provided both days as part of your registration. Sessions will run from 8:00 AM–5:00 PM on both days (January 18–19, 2012).
