Republic Act 9184, otherwise known as the Government Reform Procurement Act, and its 2016 Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR)  provide for the proper implementation of public procurement by procuring entities. One of the building blocks of a sustainable, effective, efficient, responsive, and robust  public procurement system is the professionalization and continuing capability and capacity building of the Bids and Award Committees (BACs), the BAC secretariats, Technical Working Groups (TWGs) of procuring entities, other government procurement officers, and employees directly or indirectly involved in public procurement including private suppliers, contractors, and service providers.

To pursue its mission of continuous capability building of government procurement officers, the Government Procurement Policy Board  Technical Support Office (GPPB-TSO) is collaborating with the University of the Philippines through its constituent units in offering the Certified Public Procurement Specialist Course program. The program comprises three levels of certification:

Level: 1

Level: 2

The aim of the program is to produce certified procurement specialists and practioners imbued  with the required body of knowledge, skills sets, and right attitudes and behavior for public procurement.
