Contract managers, project managers and other professionals involved in construction projects must be able to work effectively together with their Employers, contractors and sub-contractors in order to accomplish key objectives of timely completion with no cost over-run.

 Because contracts are developed in an increasingly complex environment, including the rising use of nominated suppliers and nominated sub-contractors, a solid understanding of the contracting process is critical and this will give the contract personnel an advantage whether you are on the Employer’s or contractor’s side. Therefore a good understanding on how contracts are legally formed and how should the contract be administrated are essential for anyone who perform the role of contract administrator. A thorough understanding of the principles and the working mechanisms is crucial for one to be well equipped and be able to administer the contract confidently. This course will provide an overview of all phases of contracting, from project development and feasibility studies to completion of projects.
