This two day online training programme has been tailor-made to assist staff in their supply chain, procurement and contract management activities. It focuses on one of the key areas of the procurement cycle – the management of risk using contractual mechanisms.

The engagement of and management of contractors and other suppliers is inherently risky: huge sums of money are at stake, with projects of all types and sizes dependent on successful contract performance. If staff members are to put the right contracts in place and then manage them effectively, they must have a clear understanding from the outset of the risks of contract failure. This programme will help the staff gain such an understanding.

Programme Objectives

By the end of the online programme attendees will be able to:

  • Apply risk management tools and techniques to a variety of commercial contract situations
  • Describe the steps to manage risk
  • Understand the risks inherent in different contractual approaches
  • Apply contractual tools to manage risk
  • Demonstrate their skills and understanding through practical exercises
  • Compare and contrast different methodologies used in managing supply-side risks
  • Provide guidance to others in their organisation on approaches to manage risk in a range of commercial and construction contract projects.
Who should attend?

  • Architects, Quantity Surveyors, Construction engineers and others managing building projects
  • Specifiers, Buyers, Purchasing Professionals and Procurement Officers
  • Anyone involved in the preparation and management of ITTs, RFPs, RFQs and other bid requests to suppliers, as well as staff concerned with commercial contracts for the purchase of services, materials or equipment.
Training Methodology

The facilitator will deploy a full range of lively and interactive training methods, including exercises, role plays, case studies, practice sessions and group discussions. Each topic will be underpinned by a presentation that highlights key issues to focus on. The learning experience will be supported by a reference manual containing templates, case studies and examples of best practice. Participants will make presentations and receive personal feedback on their performance. Discussions will enable participants to share their own experiences with the rest of the group.
