The course focuses on providing the knowledge and skills necessary to administering and managing a contract. The course also will discuss and examine FIDIC Contracts, which are increasingly being used by international construction agencies and Multilateral Development Banks, including the World Bank. In a time when contracts awarded by government and commercial entities are increasingly complex and involve sophisticated technology, a firm understanding of contract administration and management is vital to success. Through lectures, discussions and case studies, the course will examine contracts in the award and performance phases from the purchasers' and contractors' viewpoints.
The seminar is intended for project managers, contract managers, professionals from government ministries and agencies, consulting professionals, legal advisors, and all involved in the implementation and management of a contract.
