Contract Management Fundamentals

Overview

This 1 day, Contract Management training course is designed to build awareness of the contract management process and factors critical to the successful management of external supply contracts.

Contract Management is the means by which organisational objectives are delivered through contractual arrangements with suppliers. In many organisations the role of Contract Manager is delegated to operational management and therefore segregated, in terms of responsibilities, from the procurement process. Effective contract management requires a coordinated and structured approach to supplier management lead by individuals with a breadth of procedural and interpersonal skill sets.
