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 a 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.

Welcome to the Question of the Day!


The road to certification can be long and sometimes frustrating so participants are free to ask questions one on one with the facilitator.
