Practical Seminar Large-Scale Public Procurement of Large-Scale Projects


The management of large-scale projects presents huge challenges to public procurement staff. Ensuring Flexibility • Risk Mitigation • Managing Complex Contracts

The majority of large-scale projects are facing cost overruns and time delays in nearly every stage of the process, which is due to their inherent complexity and numerous interfaces. Hence, procurement professionals and project managers in charge face a central question: how can we avoid falling into traps and successfully manage our projects from the beginning until the very end?

Plan your large-scale projects wisely and mitigate risks at an early stage.
A public entity will never be able to prevent any possible threat from taking place, but there are strategies that at least minimise the chance that they emerge during the process.
