Due to popular demand, FAI is pleased to announce that new live Category Management for Acquisition Professionals webinar sessions are now open for registration.

This 90-minute webinar, hosted by the Government-wide Category Management Program Management Office, will provide an introduction to the benefits of category management such as facilitating smarter purchasing decisions, eliminating redundancies, increasing efficiency, and delivering value to the government. You'll learn about the basics of category management and be introduced to resources you can use to implement it.

This course is specifically designed for acquisition professionals, but it is also applicable to anyone involved in government buying. Participants will receive 1.5 CLPs upon completion of the course.
