School Board Recognitions
December 3, 2013

6. Universal Public Procurement Certification Council (UPPCC) Agency Certification Award
The School Board is pleased to recognize the divisionís Office of Purchasing Services for receiving the 2013 U-P-P-C-C Agency Certification Award from the Universal Public Procurement Certification Council. Accepting the plaque on behalf of the Office of Purchasing Services is Director Kevin Beardsley.

The award honors organizations which achieve or maintain a high percentage of purchasing services staff that are U-P-P-C-C certified.

I am pleased to report that 100 percent of required Virginia Beach City Public Schools staff is certified. This is a significant accomplishment when you consider that each staff member must meet established criteria for experience, education and training. In addition, they must each successfully complete a rigorous examination to become certified.

Mr. Beardsley congratulations to you and the entire staff for your commitment to excellence and attention to detail.

Please join me in recognizing the Office of Purchasing Services for earning this award.

Mr. Chairman, that concludes our recognitions for this evening.
