Course Description

This course will equip state agency managers and executives to effectively oversee contract managers in their line of supervision.
This course will provide high-level but practical information about how state service-oriented contracts should be procured and managed. Best practices will be highlighted as well as the principal risk to positive defensible contract management outcomes. The course's emphasis will be on how to effectively support and guide those who are responsible for day-to-day contract management activities. Each course module will conclude with a set of sample questions that should be asked of contract managers to ensure that their activities are at the appropriate level of accountability, effeciency, and compliance with state policy.
