13 - 17 May 2019 Lagos, Nigeria $5,950 Register
20 - 24 Oct 2019 Dubai, UAE $4,950 Register

Training Course Overview

Staff involved in the contracting process need to be effective and efficient in applying contract management principles and practices when dealing with third-party suppliers. Without the necessary knowledge and skills, they won’t obtain the best results from the contracting relationship. Procurement and supplier management can be a hazardous process which will trip up the untrained or inexperienced manager. Undesirable contractual liabilities can be acquired inadvertently, and loopholes in contracts can be missed, allowing suppliers to avoid their responsibilities. This training course will give contract management staff the foundations to manage third-party suppliers properly – whether in the field of construction, the supply of equipment and materials, or in the delivery of services.
