About the course

Successful contract management requires successful closeout. Many agencies struggle with this step in the contract lifecycle because personnel infrequently face this task and it’s considered less important than other tasks. Closing out a contract can be as critical a task as awarding the contract. You will gain the skills to effectively deal with contractors and other stakeholders to ensure that contracts are closed according to the terms laid out and to handle problems or issues that may arise.
