* This class is one of the optional class requirements for The Construction Purchasing Certificate Program.
Who Should Attend:
This session is for directors, facility managers, construction representatives, supply managers, purchasing agents and buyers, agency auditors, risk managers, contract managers, and inventory and warehouse managers.
Board of Directors, Board of Trustees as well as Council Members should also put this down as a session to attend considering the size and impact a single construction project can have on an agency’s budget and service to their constituents.
The participants will know when and how to best handle change orders, examples of change order forms, contract logs and best practice process flow will be shared. A detail of how to construct a risk assessment of the change order impacts will also be addressed and discussed. A overview of how to address such based on the various types of contracts which can be employed will be shown. Major sections of the program will help the participants understand the potential changes could have on both the project schedule and cost to the agency and contracted amount. We will help the attendees understand when the contractor requests a time extension if it is either necessary or warranted or should the agency file a claim and how to assess the claim worth. In addition, we will discuss the supporting documents necessary to require when a change requested is necessary or even warranted. Also, we will provide a series of tools to assist the owner, agency and buyers to mitigate changes assessed to the owner when they should be borne by the contractor or subcontractors.
