Competency badges achieve several goals:
- Public procurement professionals have no barriers to entry when enrolling in a competency module and can achieve public recognition via the competency badge relatively quick.
- Public procurement professionals can select from among any combination of Framework competencies to align with her/his current and aspirational goals; earning competency badges as each module is completed. For some competencies, separate modules may be available for baseline level and advanced-level learning; providing even more tailored opportunities.
- A public procurement director/manager can develop a customized, professional development plan and pathway for each employee or a group of employees within job functions; aligning the Framework competency modules to a training program based on related roles and responsibilities and the employee. The employee, in turn, earns competency badges along this pathway.
