The AWARD® User course is taught using a ‘hands-on’ approach, with interactive classroom teaching supported by exercises using the AWARD® software running on laptops.

It has been designed to be delivered in two distinct parts, relating to different points in the procurement life-cycle.

The course is offered to project team members, delivered on-site for up to 10 attendees.

Part 1

Teaches how AWARD® can be most effectively used to support supplier selection activities by covering all the key concepts of AWARD®.

It gives attendees the knowledge they need to be able to make decisions about how to best deploy AWARD®, ensuring that the procurement process runs smoothly and makes full use of its capabilities.

Part 1 is ideally delivered at the beginning of the planning stage in order that the attendees have full awareness of AWARD® functionality before making key decisions about how they will exchange information with bidders and undertake their evaluation.

Part 2

Expands on the concepts covered in Part 1 to cover the various day-to-day tasks required to manage supplier selection activities in AWARD®.

This knowledge will enable attendees to be able to manage and administer the AWARD® system whilst it is being using by the wider team.

Part 2 addresses the phase after the planning stage – just before the actual supplier selection activities start. This ensures that attendees are able to administer AWARD® before it is used in a live environment.
