Purchasing and Contract Services training offered

Submitted by Chris Robinson

Purchasing and Contract Services will offer two in-person training opportunities on Wednesday, Aug. 16, in the Flint Hills Room at the K-State Student Union.

University Purchasing, Contracts, the CLM and Bid Authority will be offered from 8:30-10 a.m. This training will cover the "how to" of purchases and contracts: leveraging the contract lifecycle system, or CLM, in the purchasing and contracting process; exploring the university's purchasing and contracting policies — PPM 3070 and PPM 6310; understanding the risk framework model of contracting; the unique requirements for purchase of technology products and services; and more. The session will serve as both an introduction for new K-State team members and a refresher for the experienced. All faculty and staff are welcome to attend. Please RSVP to kspurch@k-state.edu.

Delegated Bid Authority Training will be offered from 10:15-11:45 a.m. This training will cover the simplified solicitation process and the training needed to become a delegated purchasing liaison to solicit competitive bids under the direction of the unit head. The training also serves as the required refresher course for those currently holding delegated bid authority certification. All business liaisons seeking — or re-certifying for — delegated bid authority are welcome to attend. Please RSVP to kspurch@k-state.edu.   

A repeat opportunity to participate in these two sessions will be offered for those unable to attend.
