About the Course

Contract Management concerns the administration of contracts between companies and their vendors in order to derive maximum advantage from them and reduce financial risk. Contract Management starts from drafting the contract at the beginning through to the tracking of the contract throughout the contract period to ensure each party’s obligations are fulfilled and each risk is minimised.

Successful Contract Management can result in the development of closer relationships with suppliers, resulting in increased value from the contract and increased benefits to the business, as they know how to procure the best contracts and how best to carry out the contracting process.

During this classroom-based training session, you will learn the skills, principles and techniques for managing contracts, reducing risk, and improving the contract process.
