This course has been designed for Commonwealth employees responsible for contract management, including contract administration staff who report to contract managers.

Course outline and objectives

In this 3-hour course we will discuss:

  • getting to know your contract
  • establishing an appropriate relationship with your contractor
  • setting up systems to manage your contract effectively
  • how to manage your communications and contract-related documents
