management and professional development TOPICS
 
COst-benefit analysis and how to prepare a business case
2 Days
workshop for contract professionals on how to prepare a cost-benefit analysis and a business case for an acquisition or purchase.  A basic cost-benefit analysis is simply a way of comparing the value of one alternative over one or more others by showing where the advantage of your recommendation is greater than the value of others.  

It sounds simple enough but terms of art such as “best value” and “lowest price technically acceptable” must be considered as a part of the formula in government contracts. Intrinsic values such as “trusted supplier” can benefit your calculation in a cost-benefit analysis.  

This workshop will include basic presentation formats and examples that you can use on the job.  The workshop also covers the development of a business case. A basic business case usually outlines the reasons why a decision for one alternative should be made. A business case is a presentation or a document that encourages and advocates a decision in your favor. The workshop features the contents of a business case – including a cost-benefit analysis – and templates with practical exercises.
