A contract management course for NIOSH officials is presented, with focus on the extramural contracting process. The contract is defined as a procurement to obtain, for a price, a specified performance of an identifiable end under specified terms. It involves the action of two parties, is promissory in nature and concerns a result which at least in principle is capable of being accomplished. The Project Office is required to monitor the contractor's activities in order to ensure proper performance. Training exercises and management objectives developed in the course related primarily to the Project Officer's duties. Included are instructions and discussions of: 1) principles of government contracting; 2) procurement process; 3) work statement; 4) establishing technical evaluation criteria; 5) proposal evaluation; and 6) post award administration. An overview of the procurement process is provided along with case materials and simulations. Pertinent DHEW, CDC, and NIOSH implementing directives pertaining to the preaward, contracting phase are provided.
