    And more...

This specialized program covers critical contract administration topical areas, including the applicable contract clauses, forms, and relevant issues.

Now that you've been awarded a government contract, government and contractor teams focus on completing the requirements of the contract. The Government team focuses on managing costs, quality, meeting the contract schedule, and performance. The Contractor team focuses on managing risk, performance, quality, costs, and profit.

Many issues and problems surface quickly during the contract administration phase. Both government and contractor personnel must understand their rights and obligations under the contract and how to approach difficult situations and resolve problems to the mutual benefit of both parties.

This seminar is designed to be interactive using participant centered approaches to stimulate critical thinking and discussion on relevant contract administration issues. The application of certain forms and key clauses will be emphasized throughout to reinforce contract administration issues.

The case studies will be solved in small groups, and then discussed in detail by the entire class to ensure complete understanding of the contract administration principles involved.

Your course instructors are seasoned practitioners in the field of procurement and contracts management.

Mr. Lieberman is a former Deputy Inspector General at the Defense Department, practices government contracts on a day to day basis, and has taught more than 75 government contracts sessions to government and contractor personnel.
