Contract/Procurement Management

Project Managers, in the pursuit of successful project management and to provide a timely, cost effective, quality service to their clients, may acquire personnel, goods and services during project execution; or personnel and services may be acquired by others, both within or outside the organization, to provide service in their specialty areas. In both cases, the objective is achieved by a contract, written or oral, which is a legally binding device which defines the relationship, duration, nature and extent of service, statement of work, consideration and terms and conditions. The process by which personnel/goods/services are acquired is called procurement.
