Frequently Asked Questions


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.

What kind of learning opportunities does Procurement U offer?

  • Instructor-led Training (ILT) - An instructor facilitates the class in a set time frame. ILT classes can be offered:
    • online (recorded/video sessions and live feed/virtual training offered) 
    • in-person
  • Web-based Training (WBT) – Classes are self-paced and are not facilitated by an instructor. Participants determine when, where and at what speed they complete the training. Classes may have structured time limits or may remain open without a set time frame. 
  • Hybrid / Blended – This option is a combination of the Web-Based Training and Instructor-Led Training delivery methods. For example, an instructor may ask participants to complete a Web-Based Training a week prior to an in-person, instructor-led session at a conference. Adapted from Saba
