Contract manager's handbook

Contract management is necessary during the phase of the procurement cycle in which a contractor delivers the required goods, services or works in accordance with the council’s specification and terms and conditions of contract.

Contract management is about making sure that the contractor actually delivers the goods and services that they promise when the contract is awarded to them. 

The handbook provides you with guidance on contract management procedures. The guidance concerns activities after the formal award of a good, works or service contract, although the foundations for contract management are laid during the specification and procurement phases.
