Sorry, this class has already ended.

Procurement officials are challenged with balancing the needs of the agency with product and service availability in the market at the best value.  Developing specifications for any procurement requires interpreting the end users’ needs, and identifying and mitigating risks through document preparation to protect the agency.  The specification is the tool that transforms the requirement into a fair solicitation document and the class will collaborate on document preparation exercises.


Course Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to…

  • Understand how to utilize available resources to prepare a solicitation document that identifies the agency’s needs.
  • Detect risks associated with each purchase and be able to prepare mitigating language within the document to protect the agency.
  • Establish a procurement process within the solicitation document that is fair and transparent for suppliers.
