Project Management: Government Projects

Learn the nuances of government projects: from navigating the RFP process, obtaining government contracts, and getting a project authorized to executing and closing out projects.

Want to transition from managing corporate projects to government project management? Learn the nuances of managing government projects—a subset of project management with tougher deadlines, tighter budgets, and stricter requirements. Certified PMP® Oliver Yarbrough reviews the government project lifecycle from obtaining a government contract to executing the project and ultimately closing it out.

Learn the best practices and terminology for working with the government, including documentation such as subsidiary plans, RFPs, PWSs, and SOOs. Walk through the three phases of contract negotiation—pre-award, award, and post-award—and common challenges as well as solutions for bidding on government contracts and getting projects authorized.
