Supplier relationships are a critical aspect of any procurement function, and contracts are central to those relationships functioning well. A supplier contract, if constructed and understood well, can help create value, build connection and trust, and manage risk.

Training outcomes

  • Identify key provisions and sources of risk in purchase contracts.
  • Review supplier markups to identify the effect of each edit.
  • Navigate internal organizational protocols for how to respond to supplier edits.

Learn the structure and the details

This course is organized into 16 modules. An early module is to provide a sense of the topics covered and your present level of understanding and skill for each topic. At the end of the course, the final module will mirror these exercises, giving you feedback on your skill level for each topic after having gone through the prior training. This will help you understand which and what to focus on further improving in your work outside of the course.
