Workshop Overview

The goal of this workshop is to provide supply chain professionals with information and skills training to enable them to better manage the bidding and contracting processes and be more effective actors within the competitive bidding and contracting functions at their organizations.

This workshop focuses on practical (i.e., not merely theoretical) matters in bidding and contracting, including drafting of competitive bidding documentation, the application of competitive bidding law, the basics of contract formation and good practices in contract management.

Candidates will have an opportunity to apply knowledge of good practices in competitive bidding to a "challenge scenario," with a view to realizing preventative and remedial solutions.

The final project will offer candidates the opportunity to create a quality RFP, test their RFP drafting skills and then benefit from expert feedback from the instructor.

  • Understand competitive bidding activities and best practices
  • Read/write competitive bidding documents (RFQ and RFP)

Testimonial

“I originally signed up for an in person workshop. However with COVID19, the in person workshop was moved to an online format. This gives everyone who’s in the program an opportunity to continue with their progression through the CSCMP designation without disruptions. Excellent “plan b” solution! Thank you for having such a great platform as a backup!”

- CSCMP candidate who attended the virtual workshop on ‘Ethical Behavior and Social Responsibility’ on March 21-22, 2020.
