FAI-verified FAC-P/PM Certification Program | Senior Level | Fulfills the following FAC-P/PM Competency: Contracting
Method of Training: Classroom -- Length of Training: 3 Days (24 hours) | 24 CLPs | 24 PMI® PDUs
This comprehensive course addresses the FAC-P/PM Senior Level Contracting Competency, and all of the OFPP/FAI-mandated Performance Outcomes for that competency. It addresses the supervision, leadership, and management of the acquisition of supplies and services, construction and research and development of systems/products, including the following concepts: acquisition planning (including performance-based considerations); cost and price analysis; solicitation and selection of sources; preparation, negotiation, and award of contracts; all phases of contract administration, including termination options, if necessary. Special emphasis in this class is on the “when” “why” and “how” of establishing collaborative relationships between a buyer and a seller. The course also introduces and explains, in depth, the nine things that must be done “right” to have a successful contracting process.
Since this course is presented at the Senior Level, participants use it as an opportunity to evaluate the effectiveness of their own contracting process and to diagnose problems and develop solutions. Exercises and an integrated case study are included to allow the students to practice the skills that they are developing throughout the course. In addition, the course provides an extensive self-assessment tool the students can use to determine personal as well as organizational strengths and weaknesses that should be improved. Students will demonstrate their knowledge by answering review questions at various times during the class and by presenting an oral end-of-class Action Plan.
