Caribbean Public Procurement Conference

The CPPC is an unrivalled dynamic two day event held every two years and is the leading public procurement forum within the Commonwealth Caribbean bringing together world experts, leaders, policymakers, academics, business executives and professionals to promote the improved appreciation of the value of strategic procurement and acting as a catalyst for learning, knowledge sharing, and consensus building. Its format is unique combining dynamic conference presentations with intensive training components facilitated by global and regional experts. 

The CPPC also served as a catalyst for the establishment of the Caribbean Association of the Procurement Professionals (CAPP) which was launched in March 2008 with 80 provisional members and over the last four (4) years the membership has grown to over 250 provisional members.  Every two years the CPPC facilitates the CAPP Forum which allows professionals to come together for the purpose of networking, knowledge sharing and consensus building on issues related to the profession of procurement. 

The objectives of CAPP are

  • To promote high standards of professional skill, ethics and integrity among all those engaged in procurement.
  • To increase the appreciation of the value of procurement good practice by raising the profile of procurement professionals in the region.
  • To encourage learning, knowledge sharing and consensus building in the region.
  • To establish and implement training and certification standards and requirements for the procurement profession.
  • To work with its members to establish and mentor national chapter associations.
  • To promote reform in procurement regimes consistent with established best practice.

At present CAPP is jointly sponsored by the Caribbean Procurement Institute and the International Federation of Purchasing & Supply Management (IFPSM).

The inaugural CPPC 2008 under the theme Building Regional Consensus and Enhancing Procurement Professionalism held on March 19th and 20th and sponsored in part by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the International Federation of Purchasing and Supply Management (IFPSM) was an unprecedented success attracting the attendance of approximately 200 participants from throughout the Caribbean, North America and Europe.  Participants included Ministers of Government, Senior Public Servants, CEOs and business executives, academics and finance, legal, construction, oil & gas and procurement professionals and practitioners.

The 2nd CPPC 2010 was another trailblazing initiative being the first regional conference to be entirely green.  The CPPC 2010 Goes Green initiative was accomplished by partnering with CSR Solutions Ltd and implementing several carbon reduction strategies, measuring our carbon footprint and offsetting it by the planting of trees.  As an innovative model, CPPC 2010 Goes Green initiative aimed at helping delegates experience an eco-friendly conference demonstrative of an effective applied responsible purchasing policy.   CPPC 2010 brought together once more some of the world’s most innovative and respected thinkers and experts in the field of procurement policy, management and law. Our Conference theme this year was Leveraging Strategic Procurement to Achieve Best Value, Effective Governance and Responsible Development. The dynamic conference format included the coverage of the latest developments in multi-national procurement policy, examination of successful techniques and tools for strategic procurement and sharpen professionals engaged in the function of more sophisticated procurement models such as public private partnerships to build critical capacity for implementation and management of legal and project risk. Industry specific workshops in the Construction, Oil & Gas, IT and Defence ensured that delegates obtained relevant strategies for their respective disciplines.
