2020 Applications for UPPCC Board of Examiners Positions
For a number of years, CPPC has had a Canadian voice at the Board of Examiners (BOE) table with representatives participating in both the CPPO and CPPB Teams. These positions provide advice to the UPPCC board of directors on content quality, relevance and consistency of the UPPCC exams and provide expertise in the evaluation of and decisions made on matters relating to examination and certification. To help you decide if this is for you, take a look at the current position description for the BOE (insert link to the pdf document)
In June of 2020, CPPC became an official UPPCC partner formalizing a long-standing relationship. This partnership solidifies CPPC’s support of further education in the public procurement profession through CPPO and CPPB certifications.
CPPC is currently seeking nominations from interested and qualified individuals to fill one English and one Bilingual seat on the UPPCC Board of Examiners (BOE) for the CPPB Team. The successful candidates will represent CPPC on the UPPCC BOE for a three-year term and will be required to report regularly to the CPPC Board of Directors.
CPPC promotes open, fair and transparent procurement and therefore requires that successful candidates practice the same philosophy and conduct themselves accordingly while on the BOE as the CPPC representative.
As outlined in the application form please note:
UPPCC does not offer reimbursement for members of the BOE. Travel expenses to an in‐person meeting of the BOE is the responsibility of each BOE member. The individual member’s employer or the sponsoring organization will often cover the expense for the individual member to attend; however, it is the responsibility of the individual member to make that determination prior to submitting an application for a position or to submitting an application for a position with the UPPCC.
In this case CPPC would be the sponsoring organization and may cover expenses that the BOE member’s employer will not.
All application forms must be submitted by October 30, 2020 to CPPC.
A complete submission includes:
UPPCC Conflict of interest policy
Conflict of Interest Disclosure Form
Confidentiality Policy Agreement
All submissions will be reviewed by the CPPC Selection Committee.

Bid-Rigging: Awareness and Prevention
What does bid-rigging look like? How am I supposed to recognize it? What should I do if I suspect a rigged bid from a supplier to my RFP?
All these questions and more are answered by the Competition Bureau, the law enforcement agency responsible for ensuring competition in the Canadian marketplace. Not only do they explain the law involved in bid-rigging incidences, but they also help provide ideas for how to recognize bid-rigging by the supply community and what you, as a public purchaser, can and should do about it.
The Responsible Purchasing Network
The Responsible Purchasing Network (RPN) is an international network of buyers dedicated to socially responsible and environmentally sustainable purchasing.
Officially founded in 2005, RPN is a program that is advised by a voluntary steering committee of leading procurement stakeholders from government, industry, educational institutions, standards setting organizations, and related organizations. Conventional institutional procurement of products and services throughout the United States often results in extensive negative impacts on public health and the environment. We are committed to the identification, utilization and dissemination of standards and practices that minimize or eliminate destructive impacts without compromising performance or cost-effectiveness.
