Contract Management and Administration Fundamentals

This contract management course is a well-devised combination of essential theory & best practices delivered by practical instruction examining contract delivery method selection, planning, reporting structures, claims & variations & other contract administration processes along with useful tools to streamline the role of managing contracts.

About the Course

This is the first course in our Contract Management Professional (CMP) certification program.

Contract administration is a broad term used to describe the management of the parties’ responsibilities in delivering contracts. At the core of each responsibility is the contract.

The  contract management and administration fundamentals course briefly review the formation and interpretation of contracts as the rules of engagement between parties embarking on a project. It then looks at the processes of administration and management of the contract throughout the course of a project.

Furthermore, this contract management fundamentals training course will provide the knowledge for developing practical procedures to deliver a streamlined contract administration process.

Participants will also review the crucial interface between the contract administrator’s role and responsibilities, and that of the project manager project management functions.

Finally, as claims processes are fundamental concepts in contract administration, the course examines the most common claims, with an emphasis on claims for variations and delays. The approach to dealing with delivery defects is also addressed.

Teaching methods will include the interpretation of examples provided.
