Course Description

An effective Contract Management is equally as important as the strategy of an organisation. The capacity to deliver on strategy is not unconnected with the ability to provide to manage the contracts that come with it. As contract often represents a considerable portion of project spend, it is important that the process is well managed to ensure that value for money is realised.

Aligning Contract strategy to project deliverables ensures that the project meets its objectives. It is however the contract that ties together the parties’ aspirations and the project deliverables. Getting the contract right is important if disputes are to be minimised and the project delivered on time, at the least possible cost and with regard to safety of operations.

This course covers the essentials of the contract management. The role of contract in the procurement management process is also covered and the project life cycle is examined.
