Contract administration is a broad term used to describe a variety of responsibilities in the management of contractual relationships between parties. At the core of each responsibility is the contract.

This course will take participants through the formation and interpretation of contracts as the rules of engagement between parties embarking on a project, and the processes of administration and management of the contract throughout the course of a project.

Furthermore, it will provide the skills for developing practical procedures to deliver a streamlined contract administration process.

Participants will also review the contract administrators role and responsibilities, particularly in relation to contractual procedures and reporting systems for monitoring compliance - as an integral interface between contract administration and project management functions.

Finally as the claims process is a fundamental concept in contract administration, the course examines in detail the most common claims; namely, variations, delays and defects.

Time: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
