Charter School Procurement

This 2-day class is designed to assist charter schools to comply with Section 11 of Chapter 46 of the Acts of 1997, which requires certain charter school administrators to earn a certificate of completion from the MCPPO program.

Charter schools are subject to certain state procurement laws, are exempt from others, and are always responsible for sound business practices and best value procurements. Efficient, effective and ethical contracting practices are essential for charter schools working to achieve their goals and objectives in a cost-effective manner. Charter School Procurement concludes with a written examination.
