Effective Contracting

How to Initiate, Monitor and Complete the Contracting Process

Do you find yourself needing outside expertise to help move projects forward? Perhaps this is part of your typical operational environment or perhaps you have one critical study that is needed for you to meet program requirements.

Most people come across contracting for services at some point of their careers. It can often be confusing and frustrating when trying to deliver critical projects within a specific timeframe. Contracting is not simple, particularly if you work within the public sector.

This workshop is offered within organizations for groups of 5 people or more.
