UNDP/CIPS Cooperation on Procurement Training and Certification
UNDP procurement certification courses are accredited by the
Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS), one of the
leading bodies representing the field of procurement and supply
chain management, hereby assuring compliance with high
international qualification standards.
All UNDP courses are tailored to reflect common United Nations and public procurement rules, policies and procedures - hereby offering a unique qualification system, customized to UN and public procurement requirements.
In 2011 the "Advanced Certificate in Public Procurement - Level 3" is introduced in the series of CIPS accredited procurement certification programme. A prerequisite for participation in Level 3 is completion of the "Introductory Certificate in Public Procurement - Level 2" (offered in English and Spanish), or equivalent course.
In parallel with the roll-out of the UNDP/CIPS procurement certification programme, UNDP continues to offer its standard and tailor-made training courses. All training courses can be delivered at the client's preferred location and time, on a cost recovery basis. This is often the most cost-efficient way to train a larger group of staff/counterparts.
