Intellectual Property (IP) Management Course and Toolkit for ICT Procurement

What are the IP risks associated with incorporating open source software into a government agency’s mobile app?

What are the possible implications if the background IP of an ICT system is not addressed in the procurement contract?

Take a deep dive into IP management issues in ICT procurement!

Developed with support from the Ministry of Law, the Ministry of Finance, and GovTech, this course aims to equip participants with an understanding of IP considerations in the ICT procurement process, the mitigating of infringement risks during procurement, and best practices for handling and managing IP issues in ICT procurement.

Participants are assumed to have knowledge about IP in procurement. Otherwise they are strongly encouraged to attend the IP Management Course and Toolkit for Procurement Officers prior to attending this course.
