It covers key aspects relating to procurement as well as financial criteria, including financial justification, payback and return on capital employed.
You will learn how to build a robust procurement strategy, involving the scope of a contract and what its terms should define, as well as contract planning and the number/types of contracts you should have. The module will also explore risk allocation policy and delve into supply, delivery and payment chains. Other aspects will include the supervision of contract and subcontracts, including channels of communications.
You will also be offered an introduction to law and some background history, as well as general information on the laws governing contracts.
