APMP Expands Accreditation Opportunities through UK Firm

(Washington, DC)— March 26, 2016 — The Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP®), the global voice for proposal management accreditation, announced today that Sixfold International has become their latest APMP Approved Training Organization (ATO).

This United Kingdom-based firm becomes the eighth ATO authorised to offer APMP-Foundation™ level training. It will concentrate its efforts in the European bidding and tendering marketplace. Sixfold also provides specialist knowledge to help companies navigate the European Public Sector bidding process and create a competitive advantage through understanding how to finesse the legislation.

"We welcome Sixfold into our growing family of APMP ATO’s that support our certification program,” said Rick Harris, Executive Director of APMP. "This Company leads by example. The directors of the firm are very active within the APMP community, not only speaking at conferences and local Chapters, but also volunteering their time to support the APMP UK board.

All prospective ATOs must go through an exhaustive approval process to ensure they meet the high quality course delivery of APMP certification standards. The process includes designating a lead trainer, attending and auditing workshops, developing course materials that meet APMP certification standards and having those materials approved. They must also demonstrate a successful record of training professionals.

Andrew Haigh, Director, said, "This is a tremendous opportunity for our company. The recently updated EU legislation controlling Public Sector procurement is beginning to bite and companies in all markets need highly effective formal bidding approaches to survive. We believe APMP accreditation is the best way for individuals and organisations to develop internationally recognised, high-level competence in formal tendering. We are very pleased to be part of the worldwide team that can help bid professionals achieve that recognition and bidding success.”
