Training: Actively Managing Contracts to Improve Results



| 2:00 pm

- 3:00 pm


Actively managing contracts is a crucial technique that helps your government improve the quality of goods it procures and services it provides to residents. Without strong contract management practices, you could see poor-quality service, missed deadlines, unfulfilled deliverables, or unspent sums.

This training provided strategies to help attendees apply contract management techniques appropriately for different types of contracts, as well as new ways of working collaboratively with their vendors, understanding strategies for shifting their contract management approach from one that’s compliance-oriented to one centered on improved performance.
