QPA Renewal Issues


The attached memo regarding issues that the Division of Local Government Services has experienced with renewal of certifications was previously sent out in July 2014, and again in October 2014.  In addition, the memo notes that licensees were to start using the revised Record of Continuing Education/Renewal Forms as of January 1, 2015.  A link to the Professional Certification page of the Division's website is contained herein, and the revised forms can be downloaded from there.  As per this notice, at this point, any old renewal forms that are submitted will be returned for completion of the revised form.  If you have any questions in regard to the memo, please contact the Division's Certification Unit at (609) 292-9757, or email Daniel.Kaminski@dca.nj.gov

The Director of the Division of Local Government Services has proposed amendments to rules pertaining to Qualified Purchasing Agents.  Proposed amendments to N.J.A.C. 5:34-5.1 and 5.2, together with the proposed repeal of 5:34-5.3, address the following:

- the course requirement for green product purchasing

- continuing education requirements (CEUs) for QPAs

- a grace period under certain circumstances for obtaining CEU credits

- the Director's discretion to waive minimum CEU hours under certain circumstances; and

- a fee for QPA certification renewals.

The full rule proposal can be viewed online at http://www.nj.gov/dca/divisions/dlgs/resources/rules_docs/PRN%202014-085%20(46%20NJR%20909(a)).pdf under the "Proposed Rules" section of the Division's webpage.  Comments on the rule proposal must be submitted no later than August 1, 2014 to: Jason R. Martucci, Esq. - Administrative Practice Officer - Division of Local Government Services - P.O. Box 803 - Trenton, New Jersey 08625-0803.  Comments may also be emailed to dlgs@dca.state.nj.us with the subject line "N.J.A.C. 5:34-5 Proposed Rule Amendments".
