Abstract

Contracting for services differs from the typical purchasing contract for materials. The sourcing process is different and has a different set of challenges. This session reviews the basics of contracting for services, including what you need to receive from your end users and suppliers prior to formalizing a contract. Some of the important elements include the detailed Scope of Work (SOW), the contract terms and conditions, and the process for finding a supplier.
