COURSE MODULES

Avoiding Anti-Competitive Practices

Covering the core standards driving open tendering in public procurement, this module explains why public institutions need to use open and transparent tendering practices, while avoiding improper sole-sourcing and unnecessarily restrictive requirements.

Centralizing Spending and Leveraging Open Frameworks

Surveying the benefits of centralized spending, this module explains how to consolidate cost savings and accelerate awards through the implementation of open framework agreements. This module also explains how to enable transparent second-stage processes through rotational assignments, invitational quotes, and electronic auctions.

Managing Project Risks

Analyzing the five inherent risk factors that lead to project failure, this module explains how optimism bias leads to flawed planning and failed project execution. This module also explains why public institutions need to implement long-term strategies to ensure competition in their supply chains.

Dealing with Bidding Risks

Synthesizing the leading global precedents that govern the bidding process, this module explains how public institutions are mitigating the risk of lost profit claims by phasing out Contract A formats and deploying negotiated RFPs. This module also covers the strict administrative law standards that regulate the government tendering process.
