“All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved.” – Sun Tzu
Efficient contract management processes are critical to ensure that goods and services are delivered as expected and engagements are profitable. Federal government contracts often have detailed terms and conditions that require strict contract oversight and administration. In many cases, the failure to adhere to these requirements can result in delayed payments, penalties, or even cancellation of the contract. And should any of these scenarios occur, it could prove to be problematic in winning another government contract.
According to the Annual Government Survey by Grant Thornton: “For a variety of reasons, the government contracting environment can be very challenging for private companies even in the best of times. In order to survive and thrive in such an unstable business environment, contractors must assure that their project management and contract administration personnel work closely together and present a common message to the government program managers, contracting officers and auditors with whom they interact on behalf of the company. The effectiveness of a contractor’s project management and contract administration functions can have a significant impact on a company’s profitability. This is always very important but even more so in situations where the competition for a contract is highly price sensitive and bid prices are low. Indeed, it is our experience that the amount of profit on a government contract is more often determined through the approach to contract administration than from efficient contract performance.” (Read the full write up here.)
