Chartered Procurement & Contract Management Professional Competency Frame Work

The CPCP Competency Framework details the pathway to the CPCP designation. Based on the latest 2018 Professional Practice Analysis conducted by New York Professional Institute, the framework is based on a dual-competency model, featuring both the technical (or functional) and general (or enabling) skills, abilities and knowledge necessary to effectively practice Supply Chain.

The CPCP Competency Framework outlines 44 professional competencies organized in nine functional areas of knowledge that candidates must know to earn their certification. The framework also outlines five enabling competencies that complete the professional’s skill set. It also specifies the proficiency level at which each competency is to be demonstrated and how it will be assessed.

The competencies and proficiency levels detailed in the framework represent the minimum requirements to meet CPCP certification.
