Managing risk is the process that allows organisations to realise the maximum value of their contracts by continuously identifying, tracking, and minimising risk throughout the contract lifecycle.

From Market Engagement to the Specification and from Evaluation to Contract Management the failure to manage risk is often a mitigating factor in failing contracts.

This session will look at the key issues buyers need to consider at every stage of the procurement cycle, from identifying initial risk to developing a robust risk register to managing on-going risk.
