The NIGP Content Management Committee
The NIGP Content Management Committee makes these decisions. The Committee is comprised of NIGP members who are either currently employed by a public sector agency or retired from public service. The Committee may also include industry leaders who have expertise in the discipline that is being considered for a certificate program.
Purpose of the Committee
The key purpose of the NIGP Content Management Committee is to establish policies and practices for NIGP’s certificate and designation programs. This Committee creates new certificates based on recommendations from the NIGP staff, validates topics and related courses to be bundled into a certificate, and issues all NIGP certificates.
The power of stacking competencies
Since there are 33 competencies within the Public Procurement Competency Framework, the Content Management Committee can stack individual competencies in almost an infinite number of ways to create certificates. However, it makes most sense to create certificates based on market demand.
