Procurement leaders are responsible for mitigating risks for their departments. Although every procurement professional is involved in risk management, every entity ultimately relies on its procurement leaders to protect the entity when it enters into contracts for goods and services. Mitigation of risks begins even before the procurement cycle is initiated with a process known as risk analysis.

When considering a new initiative, it can be difficult for a procurement leader to determine a starting point for risk analysis. Who is involved? How can risks be identified from various stakeholders? Will a specific procurement solve a problem, or is there another root cause? How can strategies obtained from a risk analysis be implemented?

Objectives

NIGP’s Advanced Risk Analysis course is a scenario-based, 8-hour learning experience where students leave with the ability to:

  • Anticipate risks and problems that can arise during the procurement process.
  • Create and carry out an effective procurement risk management strategy plan.
  • Conduct a peer review of a solicitation to find errors and omissions or make other suggestions to the document, answer supplier questions, and determine appropriate contract terms.
  • Mitigate risk after contract award by ensuring that the people with appropriate approval authorities execute the contract, providing feedback to suppliers not awarded and handling protests and appeals.
  • Minimize risk throughout the life of the contract by monitoring deliverables, conducting reviews and checks on contract performance, mitigate any recurrences of issues, and monitoring customer buy-in.
  • Create a risk register to identify the items with the highest level of associated risk and actions that may be needed to mitigate those risks.
  • Reduce instances of litigation, mistakes, and speed bumps.
