Procurement Contracts – To Avoid Common Pitfalls


Many organizations find it useful to train non-legal employees in the drafting, negotiating and finalizing of procurement contracts in order to reduce corporate legal risks that may arise during their implementation.  Another reason for delegating quasi-legal functions to non-legal staff is to save resources and remove the burden from an otherwise busy corporate legal department. Finally, transactions will be performed more quickly and effectively if the non-legal managers of the business receive a certain amount of focused legal training.

This important workshop will cover the functions and usage of the key provisions in a procurement contract from the perspectives of both Buyer and Seller. A wide range of critical issues are discussed that will be beneficial to non-lawyers and lawyers and assist in ensuring the proper drafting and execution of these important legal documents.
