This workshop is designed to provide an overall understanding of contracting and procurement management from the point of view of the buyer (i.e. the Project Manager).
It follows the content of the one-day course, Managing Project Procurement, but provides more time for group work on case study and exercise material.
It begins with identifying which products and services should be bought and covers all the steps of the process through contract close-out. There is an emphasis on those interactions that directly impact the Project Manager. Participants learn a model comprised of six procurement management processes:
- Plan Procurements
- Conduct Procurements
- Control Procurements
- Close Procurements
The steps within each process are clearly described, and participants immediately apply the new skills using case study exercises.
Participants will learn how to:
- Define the importance of Project Procurement Management.
- Understand overall acquisition and contract management elements.
- Describe components of procurement management.
- Describe PMI’s perspective on Project Procurement Management.
- Develop quality procurement processes– from procurement planning and solicitation through contract close-out.
- Create Project Procurement Plans, aligning procurement efforts with the desire project outcome.
This workshop utilizes brief lectures, guided discussions, short case studies, and hands-on application exercises in small teams. Participants are encouraged to share real life experiences and participate in class discussion.
Project Managers and team members working with contracts and contractors.
Note: This course is designed for those who need an awareness of contract and procurement processes and issues for executing project work. It is not a course for procurement professionals or contract lawyers.
