Managing contracts with a single supplier can often be expensive and risky. Given that contracts are increasingly being scrutinised by the taxpayer and media, it is essential that you have more effective processes in place.

With the public sector spending £290 billion on contracts each year, your organisation can use contract disaggregation to increase savings and improve service delivery.

Our A Guide to Managing Multi-Contracts course gives you the skills and knowledge to manage the disaggregation process from start to finish. Learn the principles of disaggregation, develop strategies to manage multiple contracts and effectively project manage your contracts
