Location

Columbia University, Hamilton Hall, Room 516

The Master of Science in Construction Administration program at Columbia University’s School of Professional Studies is pleased to present a practical overview of construction administration business processes: Construction Administration Business Practice: Design, Construction, Goods, Services, Procurement, and Contracting.

Part of the programs ongoing Speaker Series, this lecture will emphasize procurement practices that enable planning, pre-solicitation, solicitation, contract award, contract administration, contract closeout, and post-contract closeout project phases. Real-world projects—some of which succeeded and some of which had more mixed results—will be discussed to illustrate these phases. The processes covered will apply to public as well as private construction initiatives.
