Nancy Silver, Georgetown County Purchasing Officer, has achieved renewal of the Certified Procurement Professional designation from the National Institute of Government Purchasing. The renewal is good for three years and requires successful completion of the competency-based qualifications set forth by the NIGP Certification Commission.

The designation targets current and aspiring leaders in the procurement profession. The program offers unique attributes when compared to other procurement-related professional certifications. It is the only procurement certification anchored in the public procurement competency framework and the only certification that targets mid- to executive-level procurement leaders. The exam required for designation assesses the technical competencies, skills, abilities and behaviors required for a procurement leader on the job in today’s world. 

Silver was hired in the Georgetown County Purchasing Division in 2012 and was promoted to Purchasing Officer in 2018. She joins more than 1,050 procurement professionals across the nation and 50 in South Carolina who have earned the distinguished Certified Procurement Professional Designation. The attainment of this certification demonstrates her commitment to lifelong learning and professional development and to the continuing success of her team at Georgetown County.
