Practical Tips on Building a Contract Strategy

Date:   Jun 28, 2017 - Jun 28, 2017
Time:   12:00 PM

While there are many lawyer-delivered learning opportunities that may provide highly technical (and often theoretical) information about risk mitigation and the impact of recent case law and/or changes in regulations, there are comparatively few that focus on practical advice for developing a fit-for-purpose procurement contracting strategy.

RV & Associates (RVA's) Practical Procurement™ webinar on Contract Strategy Design offers participants an opportunity to increase their ability to develop contracting strategies -- as well as achieve an increased measure of independence from reliance on contracting specialists.  Specifically, by attending this webinar, participants shall be able to:

  • Explain the relationship between business strategy, procurement strategy and contracting strategy;
  • Use a Design Approach to effectively capture strategy input and document them into contract forms;
  • Select and articulate the most appropriate contract type for a given procurement action;
  • Confidently create more effective contracts -- and also generate improved negotiation outcomes.

Taken further and skillfully applied, the concepts from this webinar can enable you to help your organization create a more efficient contracting process that will conserve scarce contracting resources and to ensure that business value is protected when it is most needed.
