CalPCA Intermediate Acquisition Courses
To receive the most benefit from Intermediate courses, the student must first complete the Basic Acquisition Certificate learning path.
This webinar shares concepts on buying Non-IT Goods, Non-IT services, and IT Goods and Services under $10,000. It is helpful for incidental buyers who purchase day-to-day items, and is required training for many Cal-Card holders.
This webinar course assists all state employees tasked with monitoring delivery of goods or services, and explains standard procedures of contract management, from request to fulfillment.
Government Code Section 14838.5 allows departments to informally solicit and award contracts to California Certified Small Business or Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise suppliers. This on-demand course helps buyers save time, labor and resources, while strengthening California’s local economies.
This hybrid two-part course affords state acquisition professionals the critical concepts and essential elements of the Statement of Work, or SOW. Part 1 is online and user-paced. Part 2 is a one-day, face-to-face lab held at the CalPCA Training Center in West Sacramento, with discussion opportunities, actual case study examples and sample SOW documents.
Due to health concerns and recent requirements, CalPCA's scheduled in-classroom courses are canceled. When we can confidently present in-person courses again in a safe environment for all, we will re-schedule.
Our webinar courses take place as scheduled, and enrollment is still open.
Our online user-paced courses are also still available and offer continuous learning opportunities for state buyers.
