Contract management and performance are at the heart of public procurement, with legally-enforceable contracts fulfilling the needs of our entities, our stakeholders, and our communities at large. As such, public procurement professionals must be able not only to draft and finalize a contractually-binding agreement but also to manage all parties and stakeholders, ensuring that the obligations of both the contractor and entity are fulfilled throughout the life of the contract.
