Course Description


The Multilateral Development Banks, led by the World Bank are introducing changes to modernize their procurement practices with more robust strategic planning, more choice of procurement options and a greater focus on value for money and fit for purpose solutions. The changing economic needs of parties over the duration of long term projects need to be reflected in mechanisms to change existing contracts without having to revert to new procurement processing. This requires a both careful appraisal and management of risk apportionment at the outset of the procurement process and the ability to deliver change without fracturing party relationships to the cost of both.

Using the Harvard Study Method of a rolling worked problem, this GLOMACS workshop will feature a comprehensive best practice understanding of:

  • How to Undertake Contract change both Before and After Procurement of Equipment and Works
  • How to Manage and Reduce Cost and Risk
  • The Mechanics of Change in Standard Form Contracts
  • How to Preserve Project Budgets
  • Meeting the Challenge of Re-programming


By the end of this GLOMACS workshop, participants will be able to :

  • Develop a procurement strategy which accepts the need for potential contract change
  • Avoid conflict in change management
  • Appraise what is required to measure and deal with risk management
  • Select the optimal procurement arrangements
  • Develop a contract management plan
