National Education Seminar (NES) – Contract Types

Thursday, November 15, 2018

Contract Types, an accelerated, comprehensive one-day course on the practical, legal, accounting, and management implications in the use of various contract types.

This course is designed for both new and experienced contract professionals. For new professionals, it explains the different contract types and their uses. For experienced professionals, it is a refresher and an update examining the various contract types and some of the new, innovative types of contracts in use. It includes an analysis of the risks inherent in different kinds of contracting and the role of risk management in both fixed-price and cost-reimbursement contracting.

This course goes beyond consideration of the differences among the various types of contracts, and covers the practical, legal, accounting, and management implications from using each type of contract. Its end objective is to provide both new and experienced contract professionals with a greater understanding of what should be done to better administer and manage their own contracts.
