Each project is different in the way field contracts are managed. Sometimes there is a dedicated contract administrator, other times it is a field engineer who has to manage the contract and still others it is the construction manager or the project manager. On a daily basis they have to make decisions to act or not to act. These decisions could materially affect the Contractor, the Owner, and others.
In the end, no matter who is managing the contract the same contract management activities apply and the field personnel require knowledge of these activities. Knowing these activities will go a long way in minimizing claims during the contract management process as well as lessening problems in the field.
This 12 hour online course will look at 16 different activities associated with managing a field contract. Each of the 16 activities is important to the whole effort of managing the contract. If you leave out one, the whole contract management effort falls apart.
This workshop will benefit those, in industry and government, who have to manage field contracts and whose job it is to prepare the contract documents. This would include field engineers, contract administrators, construction managers, project managers, project engineers, superintendents, procurement, consultants, and site personnel interfacing with contractors.
Participants should already have some experience with preparing and administrating contracts.
Participants are encouraged to start the course by downloading and printing the Course Workbook.
