The contract award process is well documented and supported in the marketplace with guidance tools and models. The post-award process is less well served - and yet IACCM calculates that contract value leakage can amount to over 9% of an organisation’s bottom line.

This interactive App enables a contract to be classified in terms of risk and value and then guides the user through the process for all the key procedures that need to be performed in the post-award phase.

Secondly, it hyperlinks to key document templates that can be used to support these procedures whether it be in the form of action logs or communication records. Thirdly, the Application provides the user with detailed instructions and guidance on how each step in the process should be managed.

The App includes a basic set of documents and processes that can be adapted to suit any requirement large or small or any sector, public or private. It supports simple commodity purchases through to large scale outsourcing projects. The App provides both a good place to start and a reassuring checklist to ensure that all steps for successful contract management have been pursued and recorded for audit.

The benefits of using the App include:

•    Reduced variations, claims and disputes
•    Control of post-award activities
•    Improved audit trail
•    Compliance and consistency
•    Improved service delivery
•    Cost management
•    Improved change control
