Welcome to the Question of the Day!

News of Note:

- The Question of the Day is now in action again as of July 8th. If you wish to participate and are not already registered, please go to the contact page to do so.

The goal is simple: To assist public procurement professionals in preparing for the CPPO and CPPB exams, one question at a time.


Since the creation of the online Question of the day in 2007, more than four thousand public procurement professionals from across the United States and Canada have participated in this endeavor by responding to questions sent to them via daily emails. Participants may also pose questions they encounter during their independent or group studies.
