The Office of Personal Service Contract Review is excited to present a training class for Mississippi state agency purchasing and procurement professionals.

This class has been developed to provide procurement professionals in the State with the specific knowledge and education they need to effectively meet the requirements of the Public Procurement Review Board. This interactive course will cover information about the Office of Personal Service Contract Review, the Public Procurement Review Board, a general overview of the procurement process, common mistakes in procuring service contracts, new statutory & regulatory requirements including HB 1109 and best practices. Our goal is to equip all state agency purchasing officials with the necessary tools to procure service contracts in an ethical, efficient, and effective manner.
