Deliver the DE&S Commercial Function CPAC Course

Client Challenge

Due to resource limitations within CAAS, it is unlikely that CAT C & D procurements will be assured by CAAS. Consequently commercial staff need to develop the ability and confidence to challenge contractors on the detail of their prices to achieve reductions, especially for single source contracts.

Our Role

Apacheix were tasked with developing a full understanding of the course contents and the non-documented aspects of the course to enable CAAS to maintain provision of the lead instructor to the Commercial Function.  Apacheix delivered the 3 day course 5 times to a total audience of over 70 DE&S commercial staff during the second half of 2016.

Our Performance

Comments such as – “the instructor is a legend”, “he reads the room very well” & “very strong communication skills” regularly featured on the course feedback forms.
