    The deal is designed to give participating CIPS members access to modern and up-to-date management papers and commentary which complement the CIPS procurement-specific resources available on CIPS website.

    The ManagementDirect portal collates learning materials including templates, case studies, white papers and over 250 checklists and summaries of key management topics, providing practical introductions to management skills and technologies.

    Useful for studying members taking CIPS examinations and for dealing with day-to-day non-procurement management-issues, with the discount mentioned above, access to these resources is available from CMI for £99.00 per year.

    You will not be able to access this offer through the CMI website.


    1. Who are CMI?
      The British Institute of Management was launched in the 1950’s, becoming the Institute of Management in the 90’s before being granted Chartered status in 2002, when the name was changed to the Chartered Management Institute. Their vision is to see ‘better led and better managed organisations’ which they see being achieved by their Mission ‘to increase the number and standard of professionally qualified managers and leaders’. Central to this are the qualifications they offer which lead to Chartered Manager status.
    2. Why are CIPS sending me to another institute?
      CIPS develop procurement-specific resources for our members, but recognise that some members may need access to management resources that are not procurement-specific. CMI offer a tool called ManagementDirect which has excellent resources complementary to our own.
    3. What is ManagementDirect?
      The CMI have developed a portal to access all of their online learning which includes templates, case studies, white papers, and over 250 practical summaries of key management topics, providing practical introductions to management skills and technologies.

    4. Are there any other benefits to being a member of CMI?
      In addition to 24/7 access to ManagementDirect, where available, and subject to CMI’s terms and conditions, members receive a monthly electronic magazine, CPD and networking opportunities, Business HR, Redundancy Support service, and the opportunity to pursue professional qualifications. Find out more.
    5. How do I contact CMI with membership queries?
      CMI can be contacted by phone on 01536 207307 or by email at:
    6. If I become an affiliate member of CMI, do I still have to pay my CIPS membership fee?
      Yes, the reduced cost of joining CMI and accessing ManagementDirect is a benefit for CIPS members only. If you are no longer a CIPS member, you no longer qualify for the discounted rate.
