Click here to download this overview as a pdf.

This class will detail the management of procurement activities throughout the project lifecycle.  The Knowledge Area of procurement management from the PMBOK Guide will be used to establish the procurement framework. Then the elements needed during each stage in the project lifecycle for procurement management will be explored. The students will learn all aspects of the procurement lifecycle management process including understanding the relationship of the buyer and seller, determining the correct contract type for each procurement situation, selecting a seller and monitoring and controlling the execution of the contract. These concepts are discussed as they would be encountered across the project management processes (manage risk, manage quality, etc.) and project lifecycle (analysis, design, construct, etc.). This helps the students better understand how to apply procurement concepts and techniques across their real-life projects.
