PGPC One-Day Workshops

Throughout the year, PGPC offers single-day, six-hour workshops at their office location taught by experts in the field of procurement services, general fixed assets, and business management services. These intensive one-day workshops are instructor-facilitated, with hands-on training, and promote active discussion about techniques or professional concerns. Class size is limited to 12 attendees to enable individual attention.

Current Local Workshops (at PGPC)

  • Procurement: Not So Compliant Bids! on Friday, November 3, 2017 
    You won’t believe how bad some solicitations are and the Audit implications. Know the rules, dodge the findings. Just doing it the same way over and over doesn’t cut it, nor does “cut and paste” work out to your advantage. You will be asked to bring one or two of your solicitations to see how they measure up in a safe environment. This class will have you laughing and glad you came!
  • Procurement: Due Diligence on Friday, Friday, November 17, 2017
    What Is the Standard, How Is it Met, Does It Pass the Test? This class will review four different co-operative contracts to see if they measure up. Hands-on group activities!
  • Procurement: IFBs; Construction on Friday, December 1, 2017
    This workshop will be an IFB construction boot camp! It will take you through the entire IFB process from start to finish. You will come to understand where to prevent change order and how to add a quality factor. If you have SFB projects, you will need this workshop.
  • Procurement: RFPs; The 1-2-3’s on Friday, March 2, 2018
    This workshop will be a RFP boot camp where you will be taken through the entire RFP process from start to finish. You will come to understand where Strengths are; how to address the Weaknesses in the process; Make best use of the Opportunities, and protect your District from Vendor’s Threats (loopholes for charging more or claiming it was not included).
