PSPP 203: Managing and Evaluation

PSPP 203 Managing and Evaluation (PSPP 203) is an interactive online course delivered over 4 weeks and includes a live expert procurement instructor (in-house delivery available via request).

PSPP 203 will give you the skills and knowledge to manage contracts effectively and handle any performance or other issues that arise.

You’ll learn how to invoke contract remedies with minimal disruption to the contract deliverables and outcomes, and handle potential contract extensions, modifications, and renewals so that they do not create policy, legal or other risks for your organization. You’ll also explore the key legal and practical considerations for moving towards termination and transition to a new contractor or service provider.

You’ll learn how to analyze, evaluate and document contract performance, and how to ensure that file documentation provides a clear snapshot of how the contract unfolded and how any disputes or issues were resolved.

This final step in the procurement and contract management cycle covers the importance of post-contract evaluation and internal team debriefing – capturing the lessons learned to incorporate them into the planning phase of your next contract or project.  Course description.
