Slide 1
Welcome to DEFM 200. This presentation is to assist you with understanding the importance of contract
management, the importance of ethics in contract management and then we will discuss the topics
available for the final project paper. I know that this course can be daunting at first but I want everyone
to focus on this lesson so that you will have some familiarity with the final paper topics so that each of
you can make an informed decision about your final paper.
Slide 2
The agenda for this presentation is to start with some comments about the importance of contract
management, followed by some discussion about contract management ethics, and then to review the
final paper topics. We will then close with a quote about contract management.
Slide 3
Contract management is important to many different groups. According to the CMBOK “contract
management is a specialized competency within the procurement profession, but it has a very broad
perspective in terms of the responsibilities assigned to a contract manager. The job scope ranges from
administrative skills of managing, organizing and planning to the excitement and challenge of
negotiating a major contract.” Contract management is of interest to government agencies, business,
the military, students as well as academics.
Slide 4
Contract managers are expected to uphold a stringent code of ethics that covers the highest
professional standards, to bring credit to the profession, to avoid all conflicts of interest, to comply with
all laws, to remain informed about the field, to share knowledge with other contract management
professionals and to never be a negative influence upon others. The first point of the Contract
Managers Code of Ethics outlines the overarching goal of the profession, which is to “Strive to attain the
highest professional standards of job performance, to exercise diligence in carrying out one’s
professional duties, and to serve the profession to the best of one’s ability.”
Slide 5
The first research paper option is to explain, define and defend one of the core competencies of
contract managers. The three identified core competencies are: technical, conceptual and human
relations.
Slide 6
The second research paper option is to explain, define, and defend why the contract managers code of
ethics is important in the field of acquisition. If you chose this topic, consider the impact on the
profession of those that have acted ethically and unethically.
Slide 7
In closing, I know that some of you are considering the field of government contracting as your chosen
major. To this end, consider this quote from the Contract Management Body of Knowledge, “Contract
management is a mature profession but still growing” Good luck with the final paper!
