CONTRACT MANAGEMENT

Daniel Gordon (Coordinator)

Start Day: Mon 26 May

End Day:  Fri 30 May

 

Description of the module:


This 30-hour module will explore disputes as they arise in government procurements between economic operators and contracting authorities, from the early stages of acquisition planning through the competition and award of contracts and ending with disputes during contract performance.  At each stage, the module will consider ways to prevent disputes as well as ways to amicably resolve them, but also, where disputes persist, issues surrounding their litigation.

A more detailed curriculum:

1.      Preventing, resolving, and (where necessary) litigating disputes that arise in acquisition planning, such as:

  •  Disputes about whether a matter should be handled through the procurement system at all
  •  Disputes about the procurement approach (e.g., open vs. restricted or use of direct contracting)
  •  Disputes about the terms of the tender documents (e.g., specifications, selection or award criteria)


2.      Preventing, resolving, and (where necessary) litigating disputes that arise in the conduct of competitions and award of contracts, such as:

  • Disputes about the treatment of economic operators during the competition
  • Disputes about the evaluation of tenders
  • Disputes about the award of the contract
  • Disputes about the “standstill” prior to filing of a complaint and the hold on performance after a complaint is filed


3.      Preventing, resolving, and (where necessary) litigating disputes that arise during the performance of contracts, such as:

  • Disputes regarding unanticipated changes in the conditions of work (such as hitherto-unknown problems on construction sites)
  • Disputes regarding additional work and compensation for it.
