All engineers need to be technically competent, but those involved in running projects also need to have sound skills when purchasing goods and services. With the procurement of services comes the need to write tender briefs, create (and re-negotiate) contracts, evaluate vendor performance and mitigate risks.
This practical, intermediate-level workshop will help participants identify and mitigate an organisation's procurement and tendering process. It will look at the subject matter from the viewpoint of an engineer that is required to buy goods and services, run projects and vary contracts.
As a participant you’ll come to understand important laws that can affect a procurement contract, identify how to evaluate submissions and learn how to write and interpret project specifications.
