Contract Management Cycle

What is the Contract Management Cycle?

Contract management and the associated performance is a continuous procurement process that ensures suppliers and buyers adhere to their agreed contractual obligations along with negotiating any future changes that need to take place until such a time that termination is required.

To create a smooth end-to-end process, CIPS has developed a highly effective Contract Management Cycle model to ensure optimum scoping, planning, implementing, managing and reviewing. This can help you add value to every project and understand key roles and responsibilities.
