Contract management

Many contracts end up not quite delivering what was expected. A contract has been entered into, but something goes wrong in the execution. Professional contract management can solve this.

What is contract management?

Contract management is the method for establishing clear and transparent agreements with suppliers and actively working towards this. The input, signed contracts and amendments received are clearly recorded, managed and monitored. The aim: to fully utilise contracts and to generate management reports. Contract management is about preventing the ‘leakage’ of value from the contract. It is part of a chain; that is, procurement is about finding the value, after which the contract is implemented and managed (getting what is agreed), with supplier development following (improving what you already have).

What does a contract manager do?

Contract management is about unburdening and supporting the business. It is carried out by the business and not by procurement. However, contract management does provide input for procurement. The ownership of the contract belongs with the business. An important part of contract management is contract administration. This principally has to do with gathering and maintaining contracts and relevant information.  

A contract manager is a specialised professional who manages the contract; you monitor the result and record this in contract evaluations. You need to have the necessary professional knowledge to be able to direct the result of the contract. A contract manager is also responsible for the communication of the contract, including internally, and the relationship with the supplier. In this, you are accountable to the contract owner.
