About this course
In this section
The approach to construction procurement is dependent upon the strategic objectives of the client and the critical success factors of the project. Therefore, the decision and implementation of a procurement system and tendering strategy can have a significant impact on the success of the project. Furthermore, the increasing complexity and diversity of procurement systems available locally, nationally and internationally have resulted in the need, for those involved in the procurement process of a project, to have a robust comprehensive understanding of the legislative frameworks, inherent procurement practices and processes and the potential for challenges which may arise. This course will therefore provide participants with the opportunity to develop an in-depth knowledge of the key elements of construction procurement and to critically assess the strategic importance of procurement in relation to project success.
This course should be of interest to construction industry/related professionals who desire the opportunity to develop and enhance their strategic management abilities to improve organisational and project performance.
