HUD Training Sessions: Procurement

Course Description

This two day course will bring you up-to-date on current procurement practices as they affect contract administration and procurement in the purchasing of materials or services for tribal housing organizations. The course is interactive and not only provides classroom theory, but practical application through exercises, case studies, role plays, discussions and quizzes. Participants will develop a solid foundation in Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) funded procurement & contract management.

Training topics will range from careful preplanning and the basics of purchasing to unique factors in tribal housing purchasing, the practical how-to’s of procurement planning and policy development as well as specific regional issues. Management activities intended to avoid sanctions, penalties, and indictable offenses will also be discussed.
