Essentials of Contract Law Delivery: 1 Day


Signature Seminar:  Essentials of Contract Law Delivery   (1-Day)

Procurement and contract management professionals need to know about key areas of contract law in Canada including the differences between regular contract law and the laws of competitive bidding, and that is what this in-depth one-day course covers. Participants will examine the legal obligations unique to public-sector professionals, as well as those common to all sectors, and explore the laws surrounding agency and information rights, including copyright and confidentiality. They will review the laws governing collusion and bid-rigging, including patterns to watch for, and apply lessons learned through interactive case-study discussions. Throughout the course, participants will document key findings and lessons learned, so that they can apply them in their work.
