How Claims and Counter Claims Arise
For any organisation to be successful it is essential that a contract management function is in place, with the right knowledge and skills to carry out procurement activities effectively. This requires one or more individuals who can create and manage the organisation’s relationships with vendors, service suppliers and contractors. Procurement is often carried out through Competitive Tendering. Partnering is a broad term used to describe a more collaborative approach between the parties in developing and operating a contract. Competitive tendering and partnering might therefore be considered as opposite ends of a procurement spectrum.
While the object of international contracting is to write and manage contracts so as to minimize disputes, some disagree-ments are inevitable. These can arise from failures by one of the parties, but also often arise from misunderstandings as to obligations under the contract. Therefore, contract claiming also play a very crucial role in the whole process.
The participants will be able to apply the learning to their own organisation’s contract management practices and have a better understanding of the essential facets of Procurement, Tendering and Partnering. This course will also look at how claims (and counter claims) arise; how they can be reduced or avoided by good contracts management; how they should be evaluated when received, or prepared when being delivered and how to resolve disputes arising from such claims. It will also, and most importantly, look at ways of avoiding disputed claims in the first place.
