Contract Management is a Fundamental of Project Management, which consists of

  • Implementing any internal actions ensuring “Contract Knowledge” within Project Management team (ex: preparation of “contract checklist” focusing on clauses which can impact project margin, delivery of “contract workshop” ...)
  • Defining any processes serving Contract Management (ex: archiving process, change order management process with external stakeholders ...)
  • Managing any offensive / defensive notices in accordance with contractual provisions (ex: issue / answer a notice instructing a contract suspension, issue / answer a notice highlighting a breach of contract ...)

Contract Management enables to effectively enforce contractual rights through

  • Claim Management
  • Management of offensive and defensive claims related to non-agreed damages (ex: loss of profit, additional costs incurred due to a defect), agreed damages (ex: liquidated damages vs penalty: delay, non-performance…), disagreement over contract scope (ex: extra-cost claimed) , time extension and payment issue
  • Change Order Management
  • Management of any contractual deviations implicitly or expressly requested throughout contract execution

As a consequence, Contract Management significantly contributes to securing / improving project margin, ensuring customer satisfaction as per contractual commitments, avoiding disputes / litigation and demonstrating professionalism in Project Management.
