Contract management refers to the management of the agreement between project managers, vendors and other stakeholders of a project before the commencement of the implementation phase. It is a continuous process, starting with analysis and evaluation of the customer’s inquiry until closure, upon fulfilment of all contract obligations.
It specifically includes a very important step of negotiating the terms and conditions of contracts and ensuring compliance to these, as well as agreeing to and documenting any changes that may arise during implementation or execution. Contract management typically consists of a pre-contract phase, a contract execution phase, and a post-award phase.
