Contract Preparation and Management

Overview:

Introduction:

Staff involved in the contracting process need to be effective and efficient in applying contract management principles and practices. Without the necessary knowledge and skills, they won’t obtain the best results from contractors, service providers, vendors, and other business partners with whom their organization is doing business. Procurement and supplier management can be a hazardous process that will trip up the untrained or inexperienced manager. This conference will give those staff the foundations to manage third-party suppliers effectively – whether in the field of construction, the supply of equipment and materials, or in the delivery of services.
