The missions of an interim contract manager

The contract manager is the guardian of a project's profitability thanks to the implementation of his know-how and skills in contractual matters. He/she pilots the entire life cycle of the contract in support of a project, from the bidding phase to the closing of the project.

The missions may include various responsibilities:

  • Participate in the management of the project in its contractual aspect (relationship with the client, partners, internal stakeholders and subcontractors...)
  • Ensure the contractualization of commitments (contract, amendments and calls for tenders, contracts with service providers, archiving and monitoring the life of contracts ...)
  • Check the coherence of the whole contractual package and ensure the economic balance of the contract
  • Identify project risks and propose contractual mechanisms to ensure the best possible control
  • Alert the project manager in case of risks of non-conformity of the services to the contractual requirements, of drifts in profitability (non-contractual extra costs related to various events: additional customer requests, subcontractors risks, planning...)
  • Take charge of the events impacting the project from a contractual point of view: non-compliance with contractual obligations, claims, new regulatory requirements, etc.
  • Manage and follow the contractual administration of the project (milestones, deliverables, receipts, payments...) and deal with contractual discrepancies
  • Propose solutions of contractual arrangements and related documents (confidentiality agreements, co-contracting...)
  • Contractually support the project's after-sales activity (guarantees, support, MCO, etc.)
