PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: JANUARY 15, 2020

 

After a decade of successful collaboration delivering leading-edge training to Canadian public sector procurement professionals, The Procurement Office and Supply Chain Canada, Ontario Institute have forged a new strategic alliance that will offer Paul Emanuelli’s new eLearning certificate training programs at preferred rates to Supply Chain Canada, Ontario Institute members.

This alliance was made to leverage the synergies that the organizations offer for the elevation of the supply chain profession in Canada.

In addition to all certificates counting towards annual maintenance points for current CSCMP designation holders, graduates of some of the new eLearning certificates will be eligible for exemption from the following SCMP™ program components as follows:

Institutional Governance Certificate

  • Module 7 – Supply Chain Management for the Public Sector in the SCMP™ program
  • Interactive Workshop 4 – Competitive Bidding, Contract Preparation and Contract Management
  • 15 CPD Points

Canadian Law Certificate

  • Module 7 – Supply Chain Management for the Public Sector in the SCMP™ program
  • 15 CPD Points

Precision Drafting and Project Execution

  • 15 CPD Points

In support of this initiative, The Procurement Office will be offering special discounts on its eLearning certificates to Supply Chain Canada, Ontario Institute members. We will also be offering special introductory membership rates for non-members who want to take advantage of our best-value offering by bundling any of our certificate programs with a one-year membership with the Supply Chain Canada, Ontario Institute.

“In my view, Supply Chain Canada, Ontario Institute is committed to serving its members with made-in-Canada and made-for-Canada public sector procurement training programs. Our new eLearning programs make this tailored training more accessible than ever for Canadian public sector procurement professionals,” states Paul Emanuelli, General Counsel and Managing Director of The Procurement Office.

“The renewed partnership with Paul and The Procurement Office allows us to extend the highest quality public-sector procurement training to our members at the best available rate and extends an opportunity to those who aren’t members to join through their course registration.  We believe this partnership will provide participants extended support throughout their learning journey and establish a pathway to the association’s Supply Chain Management Professional™ (SCMP™) designation, Canada’s most-sought-after professional designation for those entering the field and advancing as leaders in supply chain,” states Al-Azhar Khalfan, President and CEO, Supply Chain Canada, Ontario Institute.
