Who should attend

This program is targeted towards individuals involved in purchasing/procurement activities such as buyers/purchasing agents, buyers and contract administrators. This class will take an in-depth look at the processes involved in purchasing services.

About the course

Purchasing services presents a unique challenge for government agencies. While we may think we understand exactly what services we want, actually specifying the requirements within an RFP requires anticipating contract management risks early in the planning phase of the procurement. Case studies will solidify the best practice concepts for developing RFPs for services.

Course Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to…

  • Determine the appropriate type of specification and develop a Scope of Work to establish a basis for contract management.
  • Establish methods for inspection and performance monitoring within the solicitation document.
  • Analyze sample documents and identify pitfalls that could result in negative consequences for the agency.
