All CIPS assessors are highly experienced procurement professionals.
You will be assigned your own CIPS assessor; a highly experienced procurement professional who will personally guide you through the process.
Assessors support you to collate evidence demonstrating performance against five dimensions of our worldclass standards, common to every business.
This evidence is submitted to the CIPS Awarding Body to verify the level that has been achieved. Success leads to an award valid for two years.
The Programme is split into levels - Standard is about 'what' you do and Advanced is about 'how well' you do it.
At Advanced level, a survey is also carried out with key stakeholders and peers to help you understand and focus on what matters to them.
Reviewing procurement and supplier management procedures in targeted detail will highlight where improvements and efficiencies can be made.
It will encourage you to question what you do and how you do it, ensuring procurement becomes an essential value driver and organisational influencer.
