Are you concerned that your solicitations or current purchasing contracts will subject you to undue risk?

Do you have trouble understanding all the terminology you encounter on some procurement contracts?

Do you grow suspicious when a supplier or seller insists that certain clauses be included in your contract?

How do you know what type of contract to use in a given situation?

Does the term “fine print” send you into a mild state of panic?

How can you reduce the stress of dealing with global agreements in a variety of countries?

Do you dread the thought of constructing a Statement of Work or specifications?

If you are thinking about questions like these, chances are you are not alone.  All too often, buyers and procurement specialists rely on a lot of luck and wishful thinking to carry them through the maneuvering of writing a contract.  For some, it is difficult knowing just where to begin.  For others, the challenge lies in making sure their contracts are comprehensive, accurate, and legally effective.

Understanding Purchasing & Supply Contracts is indeed a “practicum” which can not only help you generate the kinds of contracts you need for a variety of situations but also help you scrutinize those contracts that come to you from other sources.  Through lecture and discussion, you will get detailed explanations and illustrations involving the use of contract clauses in such a way that you will be able to apply your new-found knowledge to your own contractual environment.
