Virtual Training Handbook

I’d like to personally welcome each of you to the Center for Procurement Excellence’s Virtual RFP Training Couse. It’s an exciting time for CPE as we are growing and expanding our resources to our members and the procurement community in general. Procurement professionals are working in a time of change and CPE is here to help you meet be more efficient and provide better buys for your organization.

The world of procurement and supply chain is an exciting area in which to work, and CPE will continue to meet and bring inspired people together in forums like this, to ensure that all procurement officials remain at the cutting edge of our rapidly changing profession.

I’d like to give you an idea of what you can expect and what we hope to achieve over the virtual sessions. This training event includes tools, templates, and checklists to create high- performing RFPs and help to make your organization a Client of Choice. We will have interactive workshops which will provide you with the knowledge and skills to lead your next RFP process to success.

CPE is planning various events in the coming year, including our national conference in Los Angeles, California in October 2021. I would like to encourage you to be involved in our non-profit member organization. This involvement can include participating in our annual conference as a speaker, participating with procurement research, assisting with identifying new training courses, and many other avenues.

I want to thank each of your for attending our Virtual Training Course and bringing your expertise to our gathering. You, as procurement professionals, have the vision, the knowledge, the wherewithal, and the experience to help guide the procurement process at your organization.
