This is the eBook version of the study guide to support your studies for the core module Managing Contractual Risk which forms part of the CIPS Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Procurement and Supply qualification.
As organisations outsource more and more activity it is vital that they ensure that the associated contracts deliver expected services and/or products. Hence, a fundamental area that those who are tasked with managing the procurement and supply function are faced with is the identification, monitoring and management of contractual risk. This module is designed to enable learners to examine the nature of contract risk and the associated legal implications that relate to contract formation and non-conformance. They will also consider the impact of breach of contract and coping strategies to address such breaches.
