DESCRIPTION
 
Most contracts are negotiated by competitive bidding/contracting procedures. All too often shortcomings in the application of these procedures lead to delays, extra costs, disputes, and sometimes-legal actions. In seeking to avoid such pitfalls this seminar provides a comprehensive but compact procedure/process to competitive bidding. Properly prepared contractors, subcontractors, engineers, and developers can avoid anticipated liability, poor quality/reduce performance/disputes and receive payment for work performed. Weakness in effective contract management generally stems from the absence of right process and procedures. This seminar will define the practical and other issues involved in bidding/contracting management along with the obligations of each participant in these activities and how the disputes related to construction contracts both in public and private sectors can be addressed.

  • Obtain a practical review of bidding/contracting process.
  • Learn how to prepare bidding/contracting documents and manage contracts.
