Workshop Overview

The goal of this workshop is to provide supply chain professionals with information and skills training to enable them to better manage the bidding and contracting processes and be more effective actors within the competitive bidding and contracting functions at their organizations.

This workshop focuses on practical (i.e., not merely theoretical) matters in bidding and contracting, including drafting of competitive bidding documentation, the application of competitive bidding law, the basics of contract formation and good practices in contract management.

Candidates will have an opportunity to apply knowledge of good practices in competitive bidding to a "challenge scenario," with a view to realizing preventative and remedial solutions.

The final project will offer candidates the opportunity to create a quality RFP, test their RFP drafting skills and then benefit from expert feedback from the instructor.
