For any organisation to be successful it is essential that a contract management function is in place, with the right knowledge and skills to carry out procurement activities effectively. This requires one or more individuals who can create and manage the organisation’s relationships with vendors, service suppliers and contractors. Procurement is often carried out through Competitive Tendering. Partnering is a broad term used to describe a more collaborative approach between the parties in developing and operating a contract. Competitive tendering and partnering might therefore be considered as opposite ends of a procurement spectrum. Somewhere between these two extremes is the right approach for your organisation’s next purchasing activity.
This highly interactive EuroMaTech online training course explores and explains best practice approaches to Procurement, Tendering and Partnering. The participants will be able to apply the learning to their own organisation’s contract management practices. The outcome will be a better understanding of the essential facets of Procurement, Tendering and Partnering.
