Course Description

This course is oriented to state agency, local government, and higher education managers who supervise individuals with contract management duties and will equip them to more effectively oversee the contract managers in their line of supervision. It provides high-level but practical information about ways government managers can monitor individuals who procure, negotiate, and/or manage contracts. Best practices will be highlighted as well as the principal risk to positive contract management outcomes. The course's emphasis will be on how to effectively support and guide those who are responsible for day-to-day procurement and contract management activities. Each course module will conclude with a set of sample questions that can be asked of individuals with contract management responsibilities to ensure their activities are at the appropriate level of accountability, effeciency, and compliance with government policy.
