OIG Academy

The OIG Academy provides a variety of trainings and classes on public procurement, effective contract administration, fraud prevention and more.

The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) offers live and self-paced virtual trainings through its OIG Academy, formerly known as the MCPPO Program. The name change reflects our expanding class selection, including a wide offering of procurement classes. The MCPPO Designation remains a central part of the OIG Academy's training program. We are committed to our mission to promote excellence in public procurement, sound governance and the protection of public resources. Our classes are open to individuals interested in learning about public procurement laws and best practices in the Commonwealth that aid in the prevention and detection of fraud, waste and abuse of public funds.
