Recap: In-Person Vendor Training's for the New Contract Compliance Information Management System (CCIMS)
The City of Minneapolis rolled out our new CCIMS on March 1, 2020. We hosted four in-person vendor trainings on March 3rd & 4th providing an overview to the system and how to use the system for vendor/Small and Underutilized Business Program (SUBP) payments. If you were unable to attend one of these sessions, we are recommending that you attend one of the live webinars we have scheduled, see information below to RSVP. We had a number of handouts regarding key points and frequently asked questions. You can access those handouts by clicking here.
