Florida's Public Purchasing Training and Certification
The Florida Department of Management Services is proud to present the State of Florida's first training and certification program for Florida public purchasing professionals, sponsored by the Division of State Purchasing.
This program has been developed to assist those who expend public funds for public purposes to effectively meet the needs of their customers, the governmental agencies and the citizens they serve, to meet those needs efficiently, using as little time and as few resources as possible in the process; and to meet those needs economically, achieving the best value for the public funds expended.
The goal of this program is to develop and certify the purchasing professionals who adhere to an unwavering code of ethical behavior, and who possess the knowledge, skills and ability to effectively design, solicit, negotiate, award and manage government contracts in Florida, in a manner worthy of the public's trust.
