Contract Management - key issues facing the housing sector

Together we are Forbes

Tuesday 27 April 2010, Bridgewater Hall, Lower Mosley Street, Manchester, M2 3WS

Can RSLs and the private sector work together successfully? Yes they can - on the right terms.

The TSA wants you to provide value and good governance. Getting positive control in contract management is a way to deliver on both fronts.

Understanding the contracting process, knowing where employees stand when things change, having a plan to keep the relationship going and knowing when and how to get tough are the key elements you need. This seminar presented by specialists in law and contract management takes a practical approach on all of these issues and will help you approach contracts and contractors with more confidence to get better results
