Training Contract Negotiation: Skills And Techniques

INTRODUCTION Training Contract Negotiation: Skills And Techniques :

In many occasions, project managers or the end users usually care less on how the contract will be structured and written. Project managers or the end users tend to forward the contract management process to the procurement, legal & contract department since they assume that such process relates to procurement and/or legal/contractual matters. However, the contract management process is not only a simple contract writing process but it involves a bigger picture of the process. The project managers and/or the end users participation in that process determines whether the entire contract management process is a success. As the executor of the project & user of certain services, project managers and/or end users are highly recommended to participate in the contract management process starting from the beginning of the contract development & bidding process up to the negotiation process, contract execution and close out. This way all requirements related to the project will be well covered in the contract and there will be no flaws that may create disputes at present or in the future. One thing to remember is that project managers & end users are the persons responsible to run and manage the contract for the entire period of the project. Therefore project leaders & end users are recommended to understand about the contract and its financial & legal implications in addition to the scope of work and financing management.
