Now that the dust has settled from the start of the new fiscal year, it’s time to think about the goals you have this year. All public purchasers are encouraged to attend the Strategic Sourcing Certificate Program (SSCP) hosted by the Operational Services Division. This five-class series introduces industry best practices for purchasing and procurement, allowing professionals to work together in small groups and share their experiences.

OSD is pleased to announce that the SSCP dates for Fiscal Year 2018 have been set. Click on the location to access the appropriate SSCP Application, which must be completed and submitted to OSD Training in advance of the first class. Each course is limited to 25 students, so act quickly to reserve your spot:

  • Boston (Ashburton) starting October 19, 2017
  • Boston (Transportation Building) starting February 1, 2018
  • Lawrence starting March 22, 2018

Please note: the Essentials of State Procurement class is a prerequisite to attend SSCP. This class is offered on a regular basis; please check the current training schedule for the next available session.

Not sure if SSCP is for you? Click here to read an interview with Brittany Anderson, an SSCP graduate who put her certification to use in a new position. We look forward to seeing you!
