Employing the services of suppliers, contractors and consultants is a vital element of most significant projects. Sourcing the best qualified external parties – contractors, suppliers and consultants – to work on your project remains one of the most critical elements of a successful project. This process starts with a well-managed tendering process based on advanced selection criteria and methods to ensure that only the best in the business is selected for your company.

Following the award of the contract, the contractual relationships between project owners and their suppliers, contractors and consultants, must be clearly defined and well-documented to enable the parties to perform according to the terms of the contract and provide adequate protection against non-performance by either party. Project Procurement, Contracting & Tendering course provides a systematic approach to the planning, development, negotiation and formulation of effective contracts and highlights the critical activities to be performed during the Pre-Award, Award, and Post-Award stages of the tendering and contracting processes.


By attending Project Procurement, Contracting & Tendering program, delegates will learn how to:

  • apply the fundamentals of contract law
  • develop a systematic process and criteria for the selection of suppliers, contractors, and consultants
  • develop the contract to fairly and equitably distribute risk
  • understand the bidding/tendering and contract award processes
  • select and administer the most appropriate contract type for the project
  • develop the necessary negotiation skills to successfully negotiate contract terms and conditions
  • develop the project contract to ensure compliance with contract terms and conditions and avoid cost overruns and late delivery.


The Project Procurement, Contracting, and Tendering training course is designed for:

  • project and procurement staff
  • contract managers
  • buyers, purchasing staff
  • construction managers, and
  • other staff requiring the skills to face the challenges involved in major contracting and subcontracting activities.


The programme includes team activities, applicable case studies, group discussion, and critical analysis of video material based on actual projects.

The seminar does not assume any prior knowledge of the topics covered in the course. New concepts and tools are introduced gradually to enable delegates to progress from the fundamental to the advanced concepts of project procurement, contracting, and tendering.

Pre & Post-course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
