Description

The Executive Oversight of Contract Management course equips state agency, local government and higher education managers to more effectively oversee contract managers.

This course will equip state agency, local government and higher education managers who supervise individuals with contract management duties to more effectively oversee the contract managers in their line of supervision. It provides high-level but practical information about ways government managers can monitor individuals who procure, negotiate and/or manage contracts. Best practices will be highlighted as well as the principal risk to positive contract management outcomes.

Topics

This new course was developed in response to numerous requests from senior and executive managers for critical information and questions-to-ask that will help ensure contracts are being monitored and performance outcomes are on track.

The course's emphasis will be on how to effectively support and guide those who are responsible for day-to-day procurement and contract management activities. Each course module will conclude with a set of sample questions that can be asked of individuals with contract management responsibilities to ensure their activities are at the appropriate level of accountability, efficiency and compliance with government policy.

Who should attend

Managers not directly involved as a contract manager but who are responsible for contract oversight.
