Overview

Increasingly, governmental entities are embracing technology and IT infrastructure solutions in their desire to interact more strategically and beneficially with the communities they support. As a result, procurement professionals are expected to procure and negotiate contracts and agreements with more complex terms and conditions. Promoting an overview of technology procurements, NIGP’s Technology Procurement Specialty Certificate provides learners with an introduction to terminology, research practices and opinions, solicitation methods, strategies for risk identification, and common mistakes procurement professionals encounter when negotiating and managing awarded IT contracts. 

Objectives

Upon successful completion of the certificate, the certificate holder will be able to:

  • Determine the appropriate procurement method for IT products, services, and/or solutions.
  • Develop the solicitation document associated with IT products, services, and/or solutions.
  • Identify proposal risk and evaluation methods for IT procurement.
  • Develop an IT demo process.
  • Develop final IT contract documents.
  • Prepare for post-award activities unique to IT.
