6. Contract management

Contract management is concerned with the continuous review and management of the contractual terms and / or service level agreement secured through the procurement process to ensure the outcomes agreed are actually delivered by suppliers or partners.

Managing the contracts and relationships is imperative to ensure that:

  • the strategic priorities agreed at the outset are delivered in a cost effective and timely manner
  • non-compliance or variation is identified early for escalation and resolution
  • risks and costs are managed
  • reviews are undertaken and lessons learnt inform the commissioning and procurement process to ensure continuous improvement
