Thirty-nine NASPO members representing 27 states completed Procurement U 201: Market Research Strategies on September 22nd. This web-based, self-paced course was NASPO’s inaugural online Procurement U course and helped serve as a beta test for the Procurement U Online Learning Management System. The course, which will be offered again in 2016, reviewed the definition of market research and how it influences decision making in public procurement. Ten lucky participants will receive a complimentary Procurement U tee-shirt for assisting NASPO by providing their feedback.
NASPO staff is in the process of reviewing the feedback from the evaluations and will be incorporating suggestions into three tentatively scheduled Procurement U courses this fall, which include Cost Price Analysis, Demand Management and Current Issues in Procurement. A detailed course catalog for the fall and tentative schedule for 2016 will be released in mid-October.
If you have any questions about Procurement U, please contact staff at [email protected] or visit the Frequently Asked Questions page on naspo.org. If you are planning to attend NASPO’s annual conference, please join us Wednesday for the General Session: Developing and Supporting Staff through Procurement University for additional information about what Procurement U can do for you.
