What Is Contract Management?

It is the process of creating, implementing and managing your company contracts to increase performance and reduce legal, financial and operational risk. These contracts can be made with customers, employees, suppliers, vendors or partners to the organisation.

A Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) system includes software as well as processes to streamline the contract management cycle.

You can learn more about the Contract Management Framework here.
