In 2022, 31 contract managers completed the North Carolina Contract Manager (NCCM) certification program.

The program is administered by the Procurement and Contracts Division of the North Carolina Department of Administration (NCDOA) as part of the North Carolina Procurement Academy. Officially launched in 2019 in response to a legal mandate, the NCCM program provides government officials with essential training and best practices on contract management and negotiation strategies. More than 200 contract managers have participated in the program.

“North Carolina procurement and contract managers play a critical role in providing efficient and effective administration to the people of North Carolina,” said North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper. “Earning professional certification builds public confidence, and their commitment to public service improves life across the state.”

The six-course certification program is based on the National Contract Management Association’s (NCMA) Contract Management Body of Knowledge® (CMBOK®) and Contract Management Standard™ (CMS™), which are nationally recognized programs used by contract managers at federal and federal level are used by state government agencies, universities and other organizations across the country.

NCMA Chief Executive Officer Kraig Conrad delivered the commencement address at the NCCM graduation ceremony held in Raleigh, NC in June 2022.

David O’Neal, NCDOA State Purchasing Officer, said: “Our NCCM program aims to develop critical-thinking professionals in government procurement while establishing a common language that will help facilitate effective communication at all levels of procurement and the public to ensure the award of contracts.”

Graduates of the North Carolina Purchasing Academy program must recertify their qualification every five years. Earlier this year, the academy also launched the North Carolina Purchaser Certification Program, which focuses on the entire procurement process. Plans are already underway for another level of certification, the North Carolina Purchasing Officer, with an expected release in 2023.
