In the world of public procurement, there is never a dull moment! New systems, new contracts, new vendors and cooperatives – there is always something to learn. One of the key roles for the National Cooperative Procurement Partners (NCPP) Association is to help with that education process…in innovative ways that bring meaningful data, materials and experts to help connect and education the partners in procurement – cooperatives, strategic suppliers, affiliated organizations and Public Procurement Professionals. No matter where you sit at the table, NCPP will strive to bring unique perspectives from in-the-know experts to help with your own role. In the end, we are all here to serve the public good…and education and knowledge will assist in that goal.

Sample presentations are listed below. In addition, if you have a special request or need a presentation tailored specifically for your event, please contact us.

Cooperative Procurement: Creating a Strategy that Drives Savings and Transforms Your Procurement Process

 

This course is great for someone who is new to purchasing or cooperative procurement, or wants to learn more about creating a real strategy. Understand more about the history of cooperative procurement and government purchasing, discover ways that cooperative contracts can assist in your purchasing role, delineate when using a cooperative may or may not be the best idea; decipher the right questions to ask through the “Road Map to a Cooperative Procurement Strategy.” (1 hour)

 

Taking Your Cooperative Strategy to the Next Level

 

This course takes you past the basics. It’s a way for your team to leverage real savings (in time and money) that cooperative procurement strategy can bring to your organization. Learn innovative procurement tactics of other agencies, unveil approaches when emergencies arise, and plan the set of questions and analysis that is needed to conform with your own policies and how to educate your own internal teams (i.e. attorney’s, City Council) on the benefits of moving to a cooperative contract. This interactive session also includes real examples and scenarios to help guide that decision process.  (1 hour)

How to Navigate the Maze of Local Government

 

Selling to government can be tough. With all the rules and regulations, as well as uniqueness of each jurisdiction, it’s difficult to navigate. Learn from former procurement leaders on how to approach your government clients to create a successful partnership. This is the real deal – the do’s and don’ts as well as how to talk about cooperative contracting. Even if you have been selling to government for years, this session will enlighten your team on what the average procurement team is dealing with as they serve their own customer departments.  (1.5 hours)
