Course content

Aimed at those working with Public Private Partnerships (PPP) and Private Finance Initiatives (PFI), this course will give you the expertise to negotiate, manage and deliver framework agreements and term contracts while upholding the highest levels of customer service.

Many public services are now outsourced and there is growing support from the Local Government Association to improve the contract management skills of those working in local authorities. You will focus on examples from your own workplace and analyse case studies to sharpen your ability to lead on new contract negotiations and manage relationships.

We will develop your legal knowledge and help you make improvements to existing contracts, encouraging you to seek innovative ways of working. You will explore different strategies for resolving client-contractor and supplier conflict so that existing contracts can be successfully renegotiated.

Whether you are a public sector professional or a supplier of services, working collaboratively with your tutors and fellow students will allow you to learn from the experiences of others. You will examine different problem-solving and communication strategies which you can then apply in your own workplace.
