Government requiring PMP certification in their RFPs

PMP certification training

WASHINGTON, DC

As contract holders on several government contracts and Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) including the GSA 18F Agile BPA, Eagle II BPA, and GSA TSS BPA; we have noticed requests for proposals (RFPs) that actually require members of the team to hold a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification from the Project Management Institute (PMI).

Indeed, when we look at job opportunities on Linkedin for jobs requiring a PMP certification, we find amazing statistics for cities that do a lot of government contracting.  Most of these jobs offer annual salaries over $100,000.  This is making a PMP certification more valuable than an MBA.  Given that it takes about 3 months and less than $10,000 to earn a PMP versus 2 years and about $100,000 to earn an MBA, it makes a bit more sense and cents (pardon the pun) to get that PMP first so you can afford to get an MBA.  The return on investment (ROI) seems to be quicker and higher for a PMP versus MBA.
