Plan the future

The PSP50616 Diploma of Procurement and Contracting is designed to support and enhance participant’s skills as Procurement and Contract Managers. Linking critical management skills to legal, contractual and ethical duties that influence and inform responsibilities, it provides a sound basis on which to build contract management capability.

Attending weekly, learners will follow the contract cycle from conception to finalisation and reviews, developing vital skill sets including an understanding of the contract law framework, the ability to establish contract performance and reporting measures, as well as managing contract deliverables and enforcing contract rights.
