The Zambia institute of purchasing and supply (ZIPS) was established under the Act No. 15 of 2003 of the laws of Zambia. The main function of the institute is to certify and regulate professional conduct for all procurement and supply practitioners as well as build capacity for the practitioners in the purchasing and supply profession in Zambia. In order to increase accessibility of the profession by interested Zambians, the institute has introduced local training in purchasing and supply management. This is in response to the growing demand by practitioners and school leavers who are unable to access the chartered institute of purchasing and supply (CIPS) training due to cost implications. The Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) through the Public Financial Management Reform program (PFMRP) provided funding to the Zambia institute of purchasing and supply (ZIPS) to facilitate the introduction of local training in purchasing and supply management. The program started running in 2015 and has a student population of over 350 at both certificate and Diploma levels. The professional level qualification will be introduced in July, 2018. The institute now seeks to recruit a suitable, highly motivated and goal oriented professional to fill the following vacancy.
