The MEA is partnering with OGRA in offering a course/webinar on Ontario Provincial Standards (OPS). It will be delivered in 2 modules over 2 days at approximately 2:45-hours per day.
This course/webinar will provide an overview of OPS for Roads and Public Works (OPS), the rational/history regarding OPS, it's governance and the benefits of using these harmonized standards. The fundamental elements of typical public works contact, and the means of building better contracts using OPS manuals will be explained through group exercises. Other critical components in contract development will be discussed in the municipal public works context. Case studies will be used to explore the real-world applications of these topics.
