In order to more effectively promote and ensure professionalism in government procurement, the UPPCC was formed as an independent entity in 1978. Since the organization's founding, its mission has been to recognize professionalism in public procurement through the identification of a common body of knowledge for the certification of individuals, against established standards of competency.
UPPCC accomplishes its mission through the CPPO® and CPPB® professional certification programs and by adhering to the organization's core values of Integrity, Excellence, Service, and Collaboration, in the administration of UPPCC Certification programs.
UPPCC Partners are like-minded membership organizations that recognize the importance and value of UPPCC Certifications to the global community and are dedicated to promoting the unique values and benefits of universally applicable certifications provided by an independent certifying body.
Our partners enjoy discounts on certification and recertification fees for their members and are among the first to receive news and information about UPPCC programs. UPPCC values and invites open collaboration from across the profession in the development of certifications and programs that meet the needs of public procurement. UPPCC and its Partners are unified in our mission, vision and values and together we are "Driving Excellence in Public Procurement."
