  • Evaluate what balance is needed between commercial mechanisms to manage risk and contractual mechanisms.
  • Design and negotiate appropriate liability, indemnity and warranty clauses for their organisation.
  • Design negotiation strategies for both co-operative and competitive negotiations which make it more likely that the resultant contract will meet the client's needs.
  • Critically assess when to invoke informal and formal remedies for poor performance, including liquidated damages and termination clauses.
  • Describe the key provisions of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 and relate the provisions to the behaviour of procurement practitioners in their organisation.

  • Less likelihood that risk management is undertaken in a way that results in the wrong party managing the risk.
