 UPPCC Launches Online Application for Recertification

Herndon, VA – January 14, 2019 - The Universal Public Procurement Certification Council (UPPCC) is pleased to announce that the new online application for recertification is now available.

Public procurement professionals who are credentialed by the organization as CPPOs and CPPBs are required to recertify every five (5) years to maintain their credentialed status. The recertification process consists of documenting one’s ongoing professional development and contribution activities in the field of public procurement.

More User-Friendly
UPPCC has taken the paper-based process of the past and completely transformed it into a modern, user-friendly process that is now completely paperless and accessible to any certificant through their own personalized MyUPPCC account.

Certificants will appreciate the significant benefits this convenient online application process provides, which includes the ability to: 
● log all continuing education and professional development activities as they  are completed, 
● upload documentation for logged activities directly to the application,
● track progress towards meeting recertification requirements,
● view certification status and recertification dates (expiration dates),
● apply for recertification and make payment,
● And much more!

Convenient and Organized for Busy Professionals
“UPPCC has made the tracking of my professional development activities so much easier with the new online recertification application. I can conveniently organize and log my achievements in MyUPPCC as I complete them rather than scrambling to pull them together at the last minute. I can even upload my supporting documentation directly to my application. Once I’m ready to recertify, everything is all set to be submitted.” – Kathleen Muretti, CPPO, CPPB, Chair of the UPPCC Board

Whether your recertification is due next week, next month or 3 years from now, UPPCC encourages all certificants to give the new online application a try. You can open a new application for recertification by logging into your account and clicking on the “My Application for Recertification” tab from the MyUPPCC dashboard. UPPCC is now accepting recertification submissions via the MyUPPCC portal, but will continue to accept paper application through February 28, 2019.

The Universal Public Procurement Certification Council (UPPCC) is an independent entity formed to govern and administer the Certified Public Procurement Officer (CPPO) and Certified Professional Public Buyer (CPPB) certification programs. The CPPO and CPPB programs are highly regarded and respected among procurement professionals and employers involved in the public sector. To date, the UPPCC has certified well over 10,000 professionals primarily within the US and Canada as well as in other nations around the globe.


Introducing Aspire, NIGP’s new learning experience.

Over the next year, we are enhancing member learning with the launch of Aspire, our learning experience. Aspire will enable members to connect with peers and easily access quality content using a variety of learning methods. It’s all about providing each one of you a unique experience tailored to your needs with the flexibility to learn anywhere, anytime, anyway. Aspire provides learning that’s as powerful and personal as your individual aspirations.

Here’s what to expect:

  • The NEW Aspire Learning System will be released in October. You can access all our learning offerings, quickly register for courses and explore the many learning paths to personalize your learning experience. This will replace the current MyLink.

  • Leadership Development: We have heard from members on the need for a robust Leadership Development Program. Over the next year, we will roll out a 3-tier program.
    • Tier 1: Self-Paced – Access to online leadership development content that you can take at your own pace. Set to release with the Aspire Learning System in October.
    • Tier 2: Leadership Reimagined for Chapters – Provide Chapter Leaders the opportunity to learn and exchange ideas and best practices. Scheduled to launch in February 2019.
    • Tier 3: Leadership Development for Members – Bring together a cohort of NIGP peers in both a virtual and in-person setting. Set to release at Forum 2019.

  • Virtual Web Conferences: We recognize that travel costs and time away from the office can often impact professional development. To help, we want to bring the learning directly to your desktop through our new virtual conferences. Our first conference is being offered on November 8th and 9th. Click here to learn more and register.

  • Content Enhancements: We are updating and enhancing our content to improve your overall learning experience. One area you will notice is that our content is being delivered in smaller “chunks”. This allows greater flexibility and ease when trying to fit professional development into a busy schedule.

Please reach out if you have any comments or suggestions on how we can improve your learning experience and help you aspire.

I look forward to designing and delivering this new learning experience together.

What do you aspire to? See what your colleagues have to say. (Link to I Aspire video)
