This course was developed through a partnership between the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) and the National Contract Management Association (NCMA). This first program will help participants: 1. Understand commercial procurement 'best practices' 2. Compare and contrast commercial practices with government practices 3. Share a team appreciation for how the integration of commercial procurement 'best practices' into government procurements can improve the productivity of the integrated procurement team.

From the commercial world, it is clear that better strategies for supply chain management reduce costs, drive up quality, and build competitiveness. It is equally clear that rapid and dynamic change has become a way of life in business practices. Now, the question is, can the integrated DoD acquisition team and its leaders bring about and manage the changes needed to more fully integrate "best business practices" into the DoD acquisition process?

As a result of this educational opportunity, participants should expect to:

  • Identify and describe commercial procurement "Best Practices,"
  • Compare and contrast commercial practices with government practices, and
  • Demonstrate with your team how the integration of commercial procurement "best practices" into government processes can improve the productivity of the integrated procurement team.
