In this applications course, you’ll apply the knowledge and skills learned in CON 214 and the Level I Contracting courses as you work in teams to complete an extensive, realistic, eight-day federal contract case study to develop and execute business strategies to meet customer requirements. During this highly interactive, integrated case study, you will develop the critical thinking, customer needs analysis, procurement strategy development and source selection skills necessary for successful contract performance.
As a team, you’ll perform stakeholder and spend analyses to identify opportunities for streamlining and consolidating requirements. Teams then refine a draft requirements package and develop acquisition, procurement and source selection plans. Your team will create a solicitation, respond to industry questions and perform a series of activities revolving around the source selection process. Finally, the case study closes with several activities focused on post-award issues.
Reminder: This course is intended for participants who have completed CON 214 and DAWIA Level I certification, both of which are mandatory for enrollment.
