Course Overview


Organizations in both the public and private sectors are facing increasing pressure to reduce costs and improve financial and operational performance. Effective Contract Management, which is often overlooked and presents significant challenges is crucial to improving the financial bottom line, enhancing supplier relationship management, mitigating risk, optimizing operational performance and successful project completion.

This seminar will explore 7 key challenges to successful Contract Management including: Managing Supplier Relationships; Contract Formation; Everyday Management; Risk Assessment; The Unexpected; Effective and Secure Use of IT; and Legal Framework.

While this seminar will look at contract development with a view to enhancing Contract Management, the focus of this course will be on the implementation, management and administration of a contract already in place. This seminar will focus on strategies for contract management programs and policies, performance measures, risk management, subcontractors, effective payment mechanisms and anticipating the unexpected such as contingency planning, escalation procedures and change management.  In addition, strategies for dealing with topical IT concerns will be examined such as cybersecurity management and avoiding cybersecurity breaches that can impact a contract or project in place and pose significant contractual and organizational risks. The strategies presented have a wide application and will be useful in managing most types of contracts, including capital equipment, services, IT and goods.
