NCMA Standards Adopted by Federal Government Agency


The National Contract Management Association’s (NCMA) Contract Management Standard (CMS) has been adopted by the U.S. Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) as the foundation of a new contracting training system for all civilian agencies.

The American National Standard (ANS) describes contract management in terms of the processes created through the integration and interaction of job tasks and skills and the purposes they serve. It is the basis of NCMA’s ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB)-accredited Certified Contract Management Associate certification program.

“NCMA celebrates the increase in talent mobility in government that will come through adoption of our CMS,” said NCMA chief executive officer Kraig Conrad.
