The CIPS Global Standard for Procurement and Supply is a comprehensive competency framework. Used by individuals and organisations to enhance performance, the Standard sets the benchmark for what good looks like in procurement and supply at all levels and across all sectors.
It helps individuals to identify current operating skills and abilities and what is needed to progress.
Organisations of all types can benchmark their procurement professionals against the competencies in the Standard and identify any skills and capability gaps.
The content has been developed through consultation with an extensive, global panel of 3000 practitioners and academics drawn from a the diverse sectors and skill sets inherent within the profession.
To give you additional guidance on how individuals and organisations can apply the Standard we've produced this short guide Introducing the Standard.
