Course Outline


A one-day legal education seminar
For Procurement and Contracting Professionals
With Robert C. Worthington, LLB

This one-day seminar is designed especially for procurement professionals. In it, we examine the very complex issue of creating effective and protective competitive bid solicitation documents.

What is stated in an Invitation to Tender or Request for Proposals will control and govern everything that occurs in a competitive bid solicitation. Owners and Bidders have only one chance to get it right - when their documents are created! After the close of bidding, neither the Invitation / Request nor the Tender / Proposal can change. To ensure success, Owners need to maximize every opportunity and build both flexibility and control into their Invitations and Requests...this seminar will show you how!

The Course will cover:

The Procurement Process

Controlling the Process

Controlling Disclosure

Controlling Fairness

And More!
