89th Annual International Conference Proceedings - 2004 - Philadelphia, PA
Contracting for services differs from the typical purchasing contract for materials. The sourcing process is different and has a different set of challenges. We will review 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. In this session, we will also review the pros and cons of using a reverse auction to source services.
