Legal Competency

The legal competency encompasses managing the purchase of goods, services and/or technology by handling legal services within companies, overseeing the bidding process, ensuring proper drafting and adherence to SOX, contracts and related documents while containing legal spend. Overseeing continued contract performance including any nonconformity and amendments to document.

Many organizations spend a considerable amount of time and resources writing, reviewing and managing contracts. Because contracts guide key aspects of business strategies and relationships, having deeper knowledge of the legal competency will help protect your organization from legal risk. These courses will build and expand your contracting knowledge to ensure positive outcomes for your organization.
