About Procurement U

NASPO’s Procurement U is a multi-faceted education platform provided to members of the National Association of State Procurement Officials and other state government procurement professionals. Procurement U provides professional development opportunities, training, resources, publications and more that are specifically tailored to meet the needs of state procurement officials and staff.

Procurement U courses are designed to provide instruction to learners at all levels of state government procurement, although other public procurement professionals (including federal, city and county government employees) may also benefit from courses. Procurement U courses are not intended for those employed in the private sector.

Course Fees (Standard and Discounted Rates)

NASPO has established Procurement U course fees at an affordable level to benefit the widest circle of potential learners. Fees will be evaluated on a regular basis and are subject to change. Discounted rates are available to NASPO members (state, associate, life and honorary) and all other state government employees, including employees of public, nonprofit universities. All other learners (including federal, county, and city government employees) will pay the standard course rate.  Please note, Procurement U currently does not offer group rates.


Payment is due at registration and fees are payable by credit card. NASPO state members utilizing professional development funds may pay with a code, as described below. Direct questions about payment to [email protected].

Using Professional Development Funds to Purchase Courses

Each NASPO primary state member has been assigned a unique Professional Development Fund code for use in Procurement U. Entering the code in the Coupon Code field during the checkout process allows the learner to pay directly from the state’s NASPO professional development funds. By entering the code, the learner affirms and commits that he/she has been authorized by the primary member to access funds within NASPO’s policy and guidelines.
