Course Description

  1. Overview

    Risk is a critical consideration in the contracting and procurement process. A thoughtful and proactive approach toward risk, as it relates to specific procurement actions, contributes to the success of contract performance. Risk is directly related to the successful achievement of targeted goals and objectives. The emphasis of this course is on developing a solid understanding of the complexities of risk management. The course content recognizes the importance of planning, monitoring, and proactive insight and oversight into risk areas related to the contract’s stated performance outputs and outcomes. Practical examples, discussion, group exercises, and case studies will be used throughout the course.
