Procuring complex goods and services is a necessary facet of most projects. Some projects are even effectively entirely outsourced. The more complex and high-value the project, the greater the likelihood of a firm dependence on procured support. Project managers who implement and manage such projects are expected to be proficient in procurement. This workshop will guide participants in how to manage project procurement over the phases of the project procurement life cycle, including planning, implementation, administration, monitoring, and close-out.
This workshop provides participants with the knowledge and practical skills needed to procure complex goods and services in support of the accomplishment of the project objectives.
We will examine helpful tools, techniques, and best practices for project procurement. Participants will improve their ability to implement contracts and manage contractors and consultants.
