Procurement and Contract Management Training

June 17-19

Holyoke H.A.

475 Maple St., Holyoke, MA 01040

Presented by: Jim Inglis, NAHRO

NAHRO's Procurement and Contract Management Seminar is a must for management staff and property managers. The course allows participants to gain an in-depth understanding of HUD's handbook 7460.8 REV 2 and how it interfaces with the asset management paradigm, thus helping your agency in determining responsibility and accountability at the development site. Participants will learn how to procure quality goods and services for the right cost, the highest quality, for timely delivery, and in compliance with applicable laws and policies. The training covers estimating costs of goods and services, and developing criteria for analysis of proposals.


You will learn how to comply with federal procurement requirements and regulations, use the proper procurement method and contract type, analyze costs to ensure your agency gets the highest value for its contract dollar, assess and control the procurement performance operation, and conduct yourself in accordance with professional ethics of procurement.
