Description

Contract management and performance are at the heart of public procurement, with legally-enforceable contracts fulfilling the needs of our entities, our stakeholders, and our communities at large. As such, public procurement professionals must be able not only to draft and finalize a contractually-binding agreement but also to manage all parties and stakeholders, ensuring that the obligations of both the contractor and entity are fulfilled throughout the life of the contract.


Objectives

In order to successfully earn a digital badge, learners must:

  • Ensure all of the required duties and tasks, along with applicable legal clauses, are included in the final contract by consulting with end users and legal staff as required.
  • Identify the roles and responsibilities of contract administration team members.
  • Ensure that all parties involved in a contract are meeting identified deliverables, payment milestones, and terms as specified in the contract.
  • Promote enhanced supplier relationship management through consistent, intentional, and effective communication.
  • Describe how to create or customize terms and conditions in a contract to meet the needs of the entity.

Intended Audience

This course is targeted to individuals who meet or exceed the following professional demographics: 

  • Mid-level public procurement and central warehouse professionals who serve as senior buyers, managers, directors, or equivalent functions within their respective entities.  
     
  • Non-procurement managers and supervisors who either provide procurement functions that support entity programs under delegated authority, or who already have a good understanding of basic procurement principles but wish to get more in-depth, hands-on training.  
     
  •  Professionals who are employed by local governing entities and special authorities (such as K-12 and higher education, publicly owned utilities, transportation providers, and other publicly funded or created entities) who either serve within or manage the procurement function.
     
  • Supplier managers and supervisors seeking to understand the public procurement function from a more in-depth holistic level, including the policies, standards, and procedures by which public entities must function.
