Upcoming Purchasing Classes

The Purchasing Division offers targeted training to individual state agencies and employees upon request. If your agency is interested in targeted training on a specific topic area, contact Gideon Davis at gkdavis@admin.nv.gov.

    Certification and Recertification for State Contract Managers

    The Nevada Certified Contract Manager (NVCCM) program is required pursuant to the State Administrative Manual (SAM) for all State of Nevada employees whose responsibilities  include managing agency contracting activities. The course is designed to cover the more complex aspects of State contracting, with an emphasis on the service contracting process under the State Purchasing Act (NRS 333).  A passing score on the exam is required for certification. Once certified, participants may request access to the Contract Entry Tracking System (CETS). Recertification is required every two years.  

     

    We are in the process of moving the certification program online.  More information about online training will be available soon.

              Recertification Information

              The Purchasing Division is in process of moving most of our training online, and during the transition we are not offering stand-alone NVCCM recertification classes. Staff requiring recertification can retake the two-day course (without the test), or delay recertification until the online training is available. Currently certified staff will not lose access to CETS during this transition.

                The Essentials to State Purchasing training is now available online.  The course is located in the State of Nevada Online Development Center at https://nvelearn.nv.gov/moodle/, located under Purchasing Systems and Procedures, Essentials to State Purchasing.

                This comprehensive course will benefit any employee responsible for purchases for their agency.  The class covers the rules and procedures of the commodity purchasing process, as well as outlining agencies' responsibilities of managing their personal property/fixed assets.  All State employees responsible for purchasing commodities and managing fixed assets are strongly encouraged to take the course and it's a quick refresher for those who have taken the training in the past.
