Objectives and Intended Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course participants will be able to:
- Identify the key differences between construction contracting and other types of formal contracting.
- Identify the key areas that require focus for successful completion of the contract.
- Explain techniques to reduce delays and overruns.
This course is targeted to all levels of purchasers handling construction contracting, purchasing managers overseeing the construction contracting function, and project managers overseeing the direct construction activities.
Construction Contracts can represent a very significant expenditure of resources by public agencies and, thus, a heightened liability. Historically, they have not been a type of contract routinely administered by public purchasers, which may expose the agency to higher levels of liability. This seminar will key in on areas of contract administration specific to Construction Contracting and how they can best be applied to limit risk and liability.
