Contract Pre-Award Features

The contract pre-award process demands a high level of integrity and control and requires strong engagement and communication with a wide range of project team members and external parties. The project schedule is directly impacted by each day you spend preparing contract information, managing tenders and executing evaluation and award. Coreworx Contract Management provides functionality to compress the duration of pre-award activities while protecting the integrity of the process.

Contract Post-Award Features

Managing contract activities and deliverables post-award calls for discipline in several areas: maintaining contract information, assessing risk, managing change, communicating to stakeholders, and closing out contracts. Coreworx Contract Management reduces the reliance on scattered spreadsheets and human memory by providing a central repository and processes to control change, deliverables, invoices and correspondence. Contract information is managed with revision control, subject to review processes and exchanged via transmittals. Work assignments and notifications are directed to stakeholders and monitored and expedited by contract administrators.

Contract Management Dashboards & Reports

Dashboards and reports are essential tools for accurate and timely visibility to contract performance. While most dashboards let you view summarized data for contracts they usually represent older data and don’t enable users to pursue mitigation actions for risk. Coreworx Contract Management lets you see real-time data and drill down to specific contract artifacts and processes for immediate action.
