Contracting for Lead Engineers

Engineering context

Often engineering contracts can be complex as they require contribution and consultation between scientists, project managers, as well as engineers.  This introductory course will assist you in making the most of your contribution to the contract process in your workplace. 

During this one-day workshop, our expert facilitators will guide you through contemporary legal frameworks and issues in which procurement and contract management operate by working through engineering case studies. Your facilitators will present and apply practical tools and techniques to ensure that you gain a better understanding of the contracts you deal with in the workplace.

After successfully completing the course, you will be able to identify the legal framework in which contracts operate, assist in the preparation of a contract, identify problems during contract drafting, recognise anti-competitive aspects of contracting and much more.
