The Canadian Public Procurement Council (CPPC) was established in September 1999 to be the leading resource for public procurement across Canada.
It was granted its letters patent and charter under the provisions of Part II of the Canadian Corporation Act on September 23, 1999. The most recent version of its bylaws was revised on November 6, 2013.
NATIONAL COUNCIL FOR PUBLIC PROCUREMENT AND CONTRACTING
As of January 2010, CPPC is the newest member of the National Council for Public Procurement and Contracting (NCPPC), a North American organization of non-profit associations, serving the public procurement and contracting professions in Canada and the United States.
The NCPPC aims to support public procurement and contracting professionals through:
- advocacy of public procurement principles,
- education, training and professional certification,
- applied research studies and activities,
- strategic marketing of the public procurement and contracting profession, and
- other initiatives that may benefit the professions from time to time.
As a member, the CPPC has the opportunity to feed into this larger body of expertise in public procurement and contracting as well as to call on the experience and lessons learned of each of the other organizations in supporting its own membership. The international council will demonstrate the benefits of collaboration for the support of these two very important professional fields.
