The goal of this workshop is to provide supply chain professionals with information and skills training to enable them to better manage the bidding and contracting processes and be more effective actors within the competitive bidding and contracting functions at their organizations.

This workshop focuses on practical (i.e., not merely theoretical) matters in bidding and contracting, including drafting of competitive bidding documentation, the application of competitive bidding law, the basics of contract formation and good practices in contract management.

Candidates will have an opportunity to apply knowledge of good practices in competitive bidding to a "challenge scenario," with a view to realizing preventative and remedial solutions.

The final project will offer candidates the opportunity to create a quality RFP, test their RFP drafting skills and then benefit from expert feedback from the instructor.


Upon completion of this workshop candidates should be able to:

  • Understand competitive bidding activities and best practices
  • Read/write competitive bidding documents (RFQ and RFP)
  • Understand the foundations and implications of Canadian competitive bidding law
  • Understand the implications of Canadian inter-provincial and international trade agreements for competitive bidding activities in the public sector
  • Understand the implications of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) on contracting activities in Canada
  • Understand how contracts are formed, and how to form contracts in a manner that avoids introducing uncertainty into their formation and later operation
  • Understand the component parts of processes for contract administration and management
