Procurement Certification training program launched in September
Posted: September 26, 2016
In September, the Procurement Certification Program was launched to financial transaction and business service center (FTC/BSC) staff members. The program is a series of nine classes, five of which are required. It is designed to guide participants through the purchasing decision process from identifying the appropriate payment method, selecting a vendor, processing a purchase order, identifying independent contractors, paying for services, and more. The certification program will be offered twice a year with fall and spring sessions.
Because this program has not been available since the launch of KFS, the courses are available to FTC/BSC staff only at this time.
The classes required for certification include Procurement Overview (tutorial), The Basics of Cornell Procurement, Identifying Independent Contractors and Paying for Services, Processing Purchase Orders, and Contracts and Negotiations. The optional classes include Bid Solicitations, PCard Use for FTC/BSC, Spend Viz, and e-SHOP.
