Public Sector Procurement Program (PSPP)
Public sector procurement goes far beyond purchase orders and executing contracts. That’s why the PSPP is designed to meet the unique needs of Canadian public sector professionals.
From drafting RFPs to conducting market soundings and maintaining vendor relationships, today’s public sector procurement professional faces increasing complexity in their job functions. At the same time, there are higher expectations of fairness and transparency, as well as increased pressure to demonstrate ‘best value’ and sustainability for public funds expended.
Now more than ever, updating your skills and knowledge and keeping up to date on best practices is needed to effectively manage procurements and contracts in the public sector environment.

Accreditation & SCMP Credit
PSPP Accredited through the CSCSC’s National Accreditation Program
Since 2011, the PSPP has been accredited by the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council through its National Accreditation Program (the NAP). The accreditation is renewed every three years. The NAP recognizes educational offerings in supply chain-related topics that meet the Council’s standards for accreditation, created with significant input from supply chain stakeholders. The standards are based on national and international best practices and principles, and include requirements for course/program needs assessment, design, development, delivery, and student evaluation. As an accredited program, the PSPP has shown that it meets all of those standards.
Customized Training Options to Meet Diverse Needs
PSPP courses are easily adapted for in-house delivery to public organizations across Canada. We can schedule a course for staff at your location, or set up a session where local groups partner to host a shared training initiative.
Courses can be customized to address regional or organizational templates and nuances to ensure participants receive training that is relevant and tailored to their needs, while preserving the integrity of the competency structure of the program.
Students who successfully pass any of the 200 level PSPP courses are eligible for public sector specialization credit as an exemption from taking the International Business and Multi-Cultural Skills Workshop towards the SCMP Designation Program.
Professional Designation Maintenance Credits
