Operating Practices in Contract Administration


Just as a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, a contract can be only as strong and as successful as its administration. In this highly practical course, you’ll address all aspects of effective contract administration — from initial award to final closeout. Special emphasis will be given to successful administration of contracts: problem avoidance, day-to-day operating practices, performance monitoring systems, early detection and correction of nonperformance, payment, contract modifications and working relationships.

You’ll learn proven practices for getting contracts off to a solid start, keeping them on track and handling every problem that arises. To obtain maximum benefit from the course, you should have a basic knowledge of the procurement process. For those pursuing a Master’s Certificate in Government Contracting, this is the final required core course, and it concisely integrates all the concepts and techniques presented in the other four core courses.

Prior to enrollment: confirm with your Acquisition Career Manager (ACM) or Defense Acquisition Career Manager (DACM) that this course fulfills necessary requirements in your career/certification path.
