CON 244: Construction Contracting

This five-day position-specific specialty course focuses on unique construction contracting issues, such as acquisition planning, contract performance management, funding, environmental concerns, construction contract language, construction contracting in the commercial setting, the Construction Wage Rate Requirements Statute, design/build, basic schedule delay analysis, constructive changes, acceleration, and construction contract quality management.

  • Determine the correct contract administration procedures for construction contracts, from writing the performance work statement (PWS), to solicitation and selection procedures, to quality management of the contract
