Millennials and the State Government Workforce
“Millennials” are becoming one of the more recognizable generations thanks to the prevalence of media attention they have received. This has created a sense that we often understand the typical characteristics of this particular generation, but what hasn’t been explored in depth is how this generation interacts with the world of state procurement.
This course is designed to help current public procurement leaders better understand the Millennial generation and to provide procurement officials with strategies for recruiting and retaining Millennials in the procurement office. The course will provide fundamental information regarding the Millennial generation, including some of the recruitment and retention challenges facing state government and strategies and recommendations to help you address those challenges.
This is an advanced level course. The target audience includes, but not necessarily limited to, CPOs and director level executive managers, assistant directors, program managers, supervisors, and training coordinators.

Procurement U Holds Inaugural Academic Forum
In March 2017, NASPO held the inaugural Academic Forum, co-hosted by our academic partner, Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona. The forum was created in an effort to bridge the gap between our state members and academic partners. Five academic partners and over 35 states were represented at this event that brought together state members, academics and current university students. The forum will become an annual event, which will rotate in location and be hosted by our academic partners.
The 2018 Academic Forum will be held in the spring at Michigan State University, in Lansing, Michigan. More details coming soon!
