  1. Overview

    Procurement entities form contracts for products or services, in order to ensure that purchases achieve the desired results. Contract formation is a series of pre-award procurement steps that result in a legally-binding contract between an entity and a supplier.
    Contract formation is the most important phase of contract administration, as it ultimately determines the success of a contract. Procurement officials need to understand how to prevent risks and retain the ability to mitigate issues after the contract is executed.
    This course covers all contract administration activities that occur prior to the award of the contract.
    This course is recommended for individuals who have less that three years public procurement contract management experience.
