Procurement U

Procurement U is excited to announce that we are upgrading your online learning experience! At the beginning of June 2020, Procurement U will be implementing a new Learning Management System, the online portal that you use to access your online courses, instructor-led trainings, publications, and transcript records. This new platform will offer you an industry-leading procurement education hub with a more accessible and engaging user experience to help you learn, innovate, and achieve your professional development goals.

Check out the FAQs below to learn more about this transition and the upcoming steps.

FAQS
  • When will the new Learning Management System (LMS) go live?  

    We anticipate the new LMS going live on June 1, 2020.

  • Will the website URL to access Procurement U change?  

    Yes, the new URL will be https://procurementu.myabsorb.com

  • Will the price of Procurement U courses change?

    As a matter of fact, we are simplifying our pricing structure and moving to one-price for all users. Starting June 1st, all Procurement U self-paced courses will be reduced to $20 per contact hour for all users, both member and non-member alike. This includes all local and federal government employee users who previously paid a slightly higher rate. We are excited to extend this benefit and make professional development even more obtainable for everyone in public procurement.
