    Some lessons are learned the hard way. Many Procurement Professionals would agree that many of the most painful lessons and contract controversies could have been avoided through careful planning, consideration, or anticipation during specification development. During this interactive work session, participants will receive tips that will help them to avoid potential challenges in future Service Contract and will be encouraged to discuss some of their own lessons learned.


    After completing this online training session, learners will be able to:
    1. Acquire tools to assist in the prevention of grey areas in their service specifications.
    2. Identify potential holes in service solicitations that they may be working on at that time.
    3. Explore real life contract controversies and lessons leanred as a result of inadequate specifications.
