Contract Cost and Price Analysis: a Realistic Approach for Buyers and Sellers

Understand the key issues with pricing and learn the real tools and techniques for analysis.

It is essential that professional procurement and sales staff have a clear understanding of the various factors that determine how to set the prices that are charged. Pricing is both an 'Art' and a 'Science' as well as being an important and flexible tool in the buyer/seller relationship. The rapidly changing commercial environment in which we operate often involves changes over time.

This course examines these issues in relation to the procurement of both goods and services ("contracts") and from the perspectives both of the buyer and the supplier. It provides an understanding of the tricks of the trade that buyers and sellers use to maximise profits.


To provide participants with a thorough understanding of the difference between price and cost, value and reward, a 'good deal' versus a 'bad deal'. It takes into account all the factors involved such that the person can be confident of awarding the contract to the best supplier under the prevailing circumstances.

This course is designed for:

Staff in the procurement and contracting function(s) and for staff from suppliers. It is suitable for newcomers to contract management as well as for experienced staff, for whom it should open wider horizons beyond the traditional adversarial viewpoint.
