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.
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
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
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.

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
