Overview/Description Target Audience Expected Duration Lesson Objectives Course Number Overview/Description
Managing the procurement process can sometimes seem like a project all in itself, as it generally involves a number of detailed and time-consuming steps – from obtaining seller responses, selecting a seller and awarding the contract, to managing the procurement relationship. This is the second course in the Project Procurement Management Knowledge Area and covers three processes: Conduct Procurements, Control Procurements, and Close Procurements. Specifically, learners will be introduced to proposal evaluation techniques, procurement negotiations, and handling claims and disputes. The course will also cover the components of procurement documents and a contract file for controlling procurements, as well as techniques for closing procurements. This course is aligned with A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Fifth Edition, published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®), Inc., 2013.
